K&L Notes

Familiar to many of you by now, TWR is our longest-running direct-import partner from NZ. Husband-and-wife team Jason and Anna Flowerday run this small organic vineyard in the heart of Marlborough. Truly one of the most incredible wineries in NZ today, the wines are pure, focused, flavorful, and laced with complex minerality. Our direct-import relationship means that these wines represent one of the best values in the store, when you appreciate the quality of the wines produced and level of commitment shown. This Sauv Blanc is composed from "home block" fruit with a dash of their neighbor's fruit, plus fruit from another grower's vineyard in the Awatere valley.

    I have been talking a lot about how strong I think the 2019 vintage for Sauvignon Blanc is for Marlborough, NZ. The long, dry hot spell that occurred over the summer leading up to harvest is showing fruit and ripeness that exceeds anything in recent memory. Smaller producers who could get their grapes off the vine early managed to get plenty of bold, ripe flavors while keeping bright acidity intact. Te Whare Ra executed this perfectly. They picked on March 1st of 2019, which was the earliest they have ever harvested. It absolutely shows in the glass. Never has there been such a pure, clean note of green apple, lime, and grapefruit, with beautiful aromatic bouquet on display. The lees contact is evident, and incredibly well-executed with substantial weight and hints of creme fraiche. A touch more forward for this producer, this has tons of vintage character and is representative of the best of Marlborough.
