This Sauvignon Blanc was drawn from 4 vineyards located around Renwick in the Wairau River Valley. Whilst all have their own characters, they share in common a Wairau River gravelly, free draining and devigorating soil profile. This classical Marlborough terroir is critical in achieving the smaller berries and lower cropping levels needed to produce premium Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The stony nature of the soil also gives the wine a distinctive mineral, “wet stoneĒ character. For Kiwis itís a very evocative aroma from childhood; that smell of lying on
hot stones after a swim in the river in wet bathers on a hot summerís day!
