Kawarau Estate had a great 2009 season, with both Spring and Autumn frost periods being relatively uneventful- so big smiles all around! We had some unseasonal rain bursts pre-Christmas, but flowering had passed before this, so excellent fruit set once again. We had a healthy and productive canopy at harvest along with excellent physiological ripeness of fruit. Wines from this season should show excellent complexity and structure once again.
This Sauvignon Blanc is made in a dry style displaying citrus and flinty aromatics complemented by tropical fruits on the palate. Elegantly textured with a long finish.
