  • Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Citrus, black current, elderflower and passionfruit weave together delivering a powerful aromatic bouquet. On the palate, the wine shows an intense fruit concentration with a refreshing, crisp acidity and textbook Marlborough minerality. This wine is terrific match for rich, spicy foods.

Serve at 10-14 deg C.


Winemaking

The Awatere Valley is a sub-appellation within Marlborough. It has deep Greywacke soils compacted over millions of years by ancient glaciers. Huge boulders, carried down the Awatere River, are strewn across the valley floor. River shingles, gravels and silts help bind these large rocks. The vineyards are partially protected from the prevailing north-westerly winds by a broad range of mountain peaks. Awatere valley wines are particularly prized for their intense aromatics, ripe flavours, dynamic textures and concentration.

The fruit for our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc came from our 85 hectare (196 acre) estate vineyard located at one of the marquee sites for grapes in the Awatere Valley. The climate here is noteworthy for its wide diurnal temperature swings - an atttribute that contributes to strong personality and incredible balance in the wines. The vineyard's soils are low in fertility and comprised of stones and pebbles mixed with clay and loam. The rainfall ranges from 279-406 mm (11-16 inches) a year, very arid by any measurement.

We harvested the fruit in the cool of the night to preserve the flavour and freshness that epitomize Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning, ensuring great concentration and character. After pressing, the juice was cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the essence of the fruit.

All Vavasour wines are 100% varietal and true, honest expressions of their Awatere Valley terroir.
