Castlebrae Sauvignon Blanc
Castlebrae Winery
New Zealand - Marlborough

This is a single vineyard wine made with fruit from Castlebrae vineyard, located at the mouth of the Awatere River. The vines were planted in 2007 and 2013 giving a nice mix of maturity.

The wine has vibrant notes of lychee, bell pepper and citrus characters on the nose. Fresh tropical and grassy characters fill the front palate, the mid palate is juicy and the wine finishes with a nice, sweet edge. The palate has a unique freshness that is due to the free draining soils found at the growing site.

Vinification
This is a single vineyard wine made with fruit from our Castlebrae vineyard, located at the mouth of the Awatere River. The vines were planted in 2007 and 2013 giving a nice mix of maturity. The fruit was machine harvested in two passes. The picks were fermented separately and then blended back together. The early pick lends acidity to the wine and strong Awatere flavor. The later pick has more classic Sauvignon Blanc characters – lychee and tropical fruits.
