Tipot Hut Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Tipot Hut Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

This is the of one of our most popular wines. Tinpot Hut's Winemaker Fiona Turner has worked on many of the most successful wines made in Marlborough. This classic Marlborough Sauvignon has lovely depth and intensity and a Sauvignon pungency with an attractive mineral character on both the nose and palate.

Fruit for this wine is sourced from specially selected vineyards in the Blind River sub-region with the balance coming from the rich silty soils of Dillon`s Point in the Lower Wairau. The Wairau fruit imparts ripe tropical flavours, whereas the fruit from the Awatere Valley has more of a mineral and crushed fresh herb character. This blending of flavours gives a balance between herbaceous and tropical. All vineyard parcels are kept separate in the winery prior to blending post fermentation.

The 2014 growing season was characterised by an early dry spring, followed by typical cool nights and warm days in late summer and into the early autumn. This allowed for full ripeness with wonderful fruit intensity.

100% Sauvignon Blanc

The fruit from each vineyard was independently monitored and harvested before being carefully pressed to ensure minimal skin contact preventing juice deterioration. Once settled, the batches were cool fermented in stainless steel tanks using specific cultured yeasts to add complexity while retaining the fresh fruit characteristics from each of the individual vineyards. Shortly after blending, the wine was prepared for bottling under a screw-cap closure.

Intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme mingle with passion fruit and melon highlights. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough combine well with the more tropical notes from the Wairau Valley vineyards. A stylish and pleasantly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish.
