Tasting Notes

Sauvignon Gris is an ancient grape variety from Bordeaux that is closely related to Sauvignon Blanc, however, the grapes have thicker, slightly pink skins. This 2015 Cellar Selection Sauvignon Gris has an exotic combination of ripe tropical fruits and herbaceous notes such as blackcurrant leaf. The creamy textured palate exhibits a medley of stonefruit, pear, red apple and mineral wet stone nuances with a classic fine bead of acidity.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. The 2016 growing season will be remembered for one that tested our patience. A cooler than average spring led to an elongated season, with the majority of the grapes harvested in April. This dry cool autumn weather concentrated flavours yet retained natural acidities.

Aromatic, mouth-filling and dry. Fruit-driven, with a touch of complexity from a small percentage of barrel fermentation and strong, ripely herbaceous flavours, crisp and refreshing.
