Marlborough blanc

Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc

A welcoming and fine hint of citrus (lime, grapefruit) and golden kiwi on the nose. Fresh, well-balanced and round on the palate offering a rich, dense and juicy mouthfeel dominated by exotic fruits, with a pleasant mineral note.

Can be tasted on its own, with fresh seafood or with mixed salads, grilled mussels, green mussels with garlic and parsley …

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit purity and flavour; it was then aged on fine yeast lees for three months. Lees stirring over this time allows the wine to stabilise naturally, enabling us to fine the wine only once before a light, non-sterile filtration. This extended lees contact also helps the wine to gain roundness and texture.

From our younger vines, this Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant, delicately fruity and mineral with a textural finish.

Winegrowing & Terroir

In the French tradition, our entire vineyard is high density planted – this forces the vines to compete with one another, resulting in highly concentrated grapes and more mineral flavours in the wine. The younger Sauvignon vines are situated on our 3 different soils types.
