The unirrigated Redwood Valley Vineyard is situated on a gently sloping, north facing clay site; the vines range in age from 9 to 26 years. Vertical shoot positioning helps to expose the berries to sunlight, thus getting maximum intensity and optimal ripeness.
The 2011 vintage was slightly earlier than usual in the Nelson region. Our team made superb picking decisions retrospectively, given autumn rains arrived in late April, by which time all our Sauvignon Blanc had been harvested.
Our 2011 Winemakers Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and alive. It has a distinctive nettle, capsicum nose with tropical feijoa notes contributing to the palate. The wine has good fruit concentration to wrap around lovely minerally acidity.
