2019 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The Southern Cross is a star constellation that can be seen in the southern night sky and, also adorning the New Zealand flag. Crafted from grapes that are nurtured in fertile soils beneath those very same stars, the Southern Cross range offers whites with lush fruit characteristics and reds with earthy tones.

Tasting Notes

Tropical fruits galore with passionfruit and honeydew melon complimented with a squeeze of fresh lime. The palate is clean and fresh with lively acidity surrounding a core of tropical fruit flavours.

Wine Review

Vineyards and Winemaking

The grapes for this wine were harvested in our Marlborough vineyard and transported to a contract facility for dejuicing and settling. The clear juice was transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery where it was fermented in stainless steel tanks at around 12°C using X5 yeast strain. Following fermentation the wine was blended, protein stabilized, cold stabilized and fined. The finished wine was bottled in August 2019.
