Winemaker's Notes

Autumnal Splendour

An excellent late-harvest Sauvignon Blanc to be enjoyed at the end of a meal with your favourite dessert or cheeseboard.

More information

Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

Late Harvest

Late Autumnal moisture provided the perfect conditions to produce our Noble Sauvignon Blanc.

Late autumn weather conditions provide the perfect environment for botrytis to grow and flourish in our K3 Sauvignon Blanc block on our Seaview Vineyard.

We love creating our Noble Sauvignon Blanc as it signifies the end of harvest and a lot of very long hours in the vineyard and winery.

Winemaker's Notes

Foot Stomping

The fruit was hand harvested then traditionally foot stomped to see in the end of harvest. After an extended clarification period the juice was fermented for five weeks using a specialised yeast to enhance varietal character.

Tasting Notes

Oily & Rich

Best with rich nut based desserts or zesty citrus tarts. Also great with blue cheeses and fruit pastes.

Food Pairings

Enjoy with nut-based or citrus desserts or a lovely cheeseboard.

This delightful late-harvest wine can be enjoyed with many desserts, particularly rich nut based desserts or zesty citrus tarts.

Light gold, the 2014 vintage was estate-grown at Seaview and handled without oak. From botrytised grapes, it is sweet (160 grams/litre of residual sugar), peachy and honeyed, very open and expressive, with fresh acidity, a slightly oily texture and loads of drink-young charm.
