CLASSIC SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020

SOUND OF WHITE

CLASSIC SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020

The fruit for the 2020 Sound of White Sauvignon Blanc is sourced exclusively from our Sound of White vineyard and several different blocks within the vineyard. Integrated aromatics of black current, kaffir lime leaf and guava are supported by juicy minerality, softly balanced texture and a beautiful finish to tie it all together.

Fruit was sourced from three separate blocks within Sound of White. ‘D’ block at the foot of the Pinot Noir block on the hill, has a high clay content and brings richness and density to the wine, where ‘A’ block at the northern end of the vineyard brings fruit purity. The balance from ‘E’ block, where plantings run East – West as opposed to North - South was picked last on the 9th of April and threads an ‘alpine herb’ note through the wine – synonymous with Sound of White Sauvignon..

Vintage

The 2019/2020 season will be one to remember for many reasons. Spring started out with mixed weather – cool temperatures, strong north-west winds, rain and a healthy dose of sunshine which became settled warm weather through flowering in December, ensuring a modest fruit set. Late January into February was hotter than average and very dry, then eased into classic Marlborough warm days and cool nights. Those warm days and cool nights help to express the unique fruit profile of Marlborough with fresh, juicy acidity to match.
