The Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of four different blocks on the property – two warmer, sheltered inland blocks and two coastal blocks. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer sites contributing the expressive aromatics and the cooler sites giving the mineral backbone and length.
2015 was an incredibly smooth harvest which commenced around a week earlier than expected. Fortunately, all of the Sauvignon Blanc coming from our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley was harvested in excellent condition. Medium lemon in color. Fresh fruit aromas such as black currant intermingle with fresh herbs and citrus. The palate is elegant and richly textured with a distinctive mineral note on the finish.
