Winemaker’s Comments:
The Paynters Road vineyard is in the Southern Valleys subregion, known for its tropical fruit characteristics. The Southern Valleys are closer to the mountains, creating a cooler climate that leads to later ripening and more vibrant flavors. The soil of the Southern Valleys is primarily loess, or fine windblown soil derived from glacial deposits, and has more clay than other subregions.
Harvested in the cool of night and quickly processed to retain the freshness and flavor for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. The wine was carefully fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on the lees for 5 months prior to bottling.
