Description

PRODUCING THE DISTINCTIVE STYLE OF MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC
In the vineyard:
•High light levels, adequate water with irrigation as required, careful canopy
management to ensure ripe fruit
•High diurnal range means a long growing season producing fruit with intense aromas
and high acidity
•Row orientation and careful canopy management to produce the range of aromas
desired – fully ripe fruit with tropical flavours on the sunny side of the canopy, higher
green pepper and grassy (herbaceous) aromas from fruit grown on the shadier side
of the canopy
•slightly early picking if proportion of herbaceous aromas required in the blend
•Mechanically harvested fruit creates some skin contact with juice from crushed
berries during transportation to the winery leading to higher levels of herbaceous
aromas
In the winery:
•Reduction of contact with oxygen during processing of fruit by refrigerating fruit to
preserve primary fruit characters
•Choice of selected yeast to promote aromatic intensity
•Low fermentation temperature in stainless steel vessels to retain primary fruit
character
•Avoidance of malolactic conversion to preserve high acidity and retain primary fruit
character
•Minimal ageing on lees (2–3 months) and in stainless steel vessels to retain primary
fruit character
•Use of ascorbic acid and SO2 at bottling, and bottling under screwcap to retain
freshness
