Tasting Notes

"Usually, for me, one of the best sauvignon blanc’s in all of the land of the long white cloud. No slouch from 2018. And in great shape with that time in bottle. Full organic work in vineyard since inception of the site. A magnificent site too. Beautiful drinking. Juicy but cut with sheets of minerally acidity, set up on faintest chalky pucker, shows floral, lemon-lemonade characters and a big squeeze of tangy grapefruit too. Little wild herb detail and touches of slate in the mix. Long in flavour, just generous enough, plenty fresh enough. Top notch."

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.
