Breaker Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Six parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were selected for this wine. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately, using selected yeast strains for Sauvignon Blanc to enhance varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks, with the parcels then being blended and stabilised, prior to bottling.
This wine shows lifted tropical notes of guava balanced by blackcurrant bud and fresh thyme characters. The palate is full with sufficient weight and the underlying flinty minerality typical of the Seaview Vineyard which delivers a long, dry and crisp finish.
