Tasting Notes

Bright, fresh and herbal on the nose, this has vibrant green apple, lemon and light grassy characters that you might more associate with a fine Sancerre than New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The palate follows this, with taut acidity bringing fresh, mineral and restrained fruit with hints of lemon verbena and greengage. This finds a perfect harmony, avoiding the often over-exuberant New Zealand styles and the greenness possible from Sauvignon Blancs in the Loire. Fine a crisp, with good length and purity.

The Producer

Churton

Churton is a biodynamically farmed, organic (registered with Biogro NZ) vineyard situated in the southern hills of Marlborough. Producing Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir as well as small quantities of Viognier and Petit Manseng, Churton's core philosophy is New World wine tempered with Old World style. Winemaker & owner, Sam Weaver, takes advantage of the site's altitude (200m), clay based soils and superb north-east aspect to create wines that are approachable in youth but with a remarkable ability to age. These are wines of integrity that eloquently express their unique terroir and organic origins.
