'Skipjack' Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Region - Marlborough, NEW ZEALAND.

Variety - 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Style/Palate - light bodied - dry.

Cellaring - Drink now or within 4 years of release.

Winemaking -   The growing season in Marlborough was not without some late season challenges. December weather returned perfect flowering conditions and January was one of the warmest on record. February we experienced some rain which threatened to upset ripening and flavour development but in March we enjoyed extended dry periods and high sunshine hours. The fruit ripened nicely on the vines, earlier than normal and was clean, ripe and intensely flavoured come harvest in April. In the winery, the fruit was gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures to capture the expressive fruit flavours from the vineyards.
