Tasting Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc captures the true essence of Marlborough. Aromas leap out of the glass in an explosion of passionfruit, grapefruit, white fleshed nectarines and notes of nettle and jalapeño pepper. The palate shows concentrated flavours of citrus, passionfruit and lemon grass. It has a nice texture with a firm backbone of juicy acidity.
Galaxy Notes: The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the Hawkesbury, Lower Wairau and Awatere Valley sub regions of Marlborough. Each parcel of fruit was chosen for its specific contribution to the aroma, flavour and structure of the resultant blend. In order to encourage the flavours of each individual vineyard parcel to come through in the final blend I’ve kept the winemaking deliberately simple. The grapes were harvested, pressed and cold settled over a period of 48 hours. After racking off juice lees, a long, cool fermentation with selected yeast strains took place. Post fermentation, the components were blended, stabilised and bottled with a screwcap closure to retain freshness.
