Tasting notes

Enticing aromas of cassis, lemon sorbet and green mango, with a delicate dusting of white pepper spice. On the palate, juicy Winter Cole pear and baked apple pie notes are lifted by fragrant layers of elderflower and ripe citrus. An elegant yet striking interpretation of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - textural and opulent, lifted and lingering.

Vintage information

The winter of 2022 was notably wet, with 220mm of rain in July breaking all records, filling aquifers and providing an excellent resource for the season ahead. Spring conditions were
challenging, with warm sunny days, very cold nights and several frosts, including a polar blast in early October. Remarkably all source vineyards emerged unscathed and subsequently an excellent flowering period resulted in healthy crop levels. Early summer was warm but became changeable with intermittent wet spells. Obligingly, the rain dried up by late February and a very settled autumn ensued, providing all varieties with an extended ripening season. The sauvignon blanc harvest concluded ten days later than usual, a significant difference in the context of fruit ripening and flavour development.
