Reviews:

4 Stars Michael Cooper
The 2015 vintage is dry, with strong, vibrant melon and green-capsicum flavours, fresh and tangy, and a lengthy finish.

Neil Hodgson, The Nelson Mail 
This Sauvignon Blanc has bright, fresh flavours with a certain purity we have come to expect from Blackenbrook.

Ripe melon, apricots, passionfruit, zesty green capsicum and firm lime characters dominate the flavours while the ripe acidity leaves a wonderful juiciness in the long finish. Perfect summer drinking.

 

Viticulture
• From Sustainable Production, accredited by
     Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand

• Vegan Wine, certified by the New Zealand Vegetarian Society

Weather Conditions: Spring and summer were hot and extremely dry, enhancing great flavours in our grapes. Rain set in just one week before harvest, making for anxious times. Luckily the fine weather returned for another 2 weeks – just long enough to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.

• 100% fruit from our Home block
• Moutere clay soil with a layer of sandy loam
• Clone Sauvignon Blanc MS
• Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on 28 March

 

Winemaking
• Extremely gentle winemaking:
Whole bunch pressed, gravity-fed from press area to main winery, cool fermentation, extended lees contact, minimal pumping, filtration in a single pass from cloudy to sterile, no fining pre-bottling

• Oak-ageing for 7% of the wine to add complexity
• 4g/ltr natural residual sugar

• Bottled on 28 July in light-weight bottles to reduce our carbon footprint
• 13.0% alcohol
