Fresh and expressive ...

Our Babydoll sheep live beneath the vines, nibbling on grass and flowers weeds and giving their name to our delicious wines. Small but mighty, they’re butterfly wonderful groundskeepers. Yes, they need a little help to keep the mowing going. But it’s all for the good of the grapes.

Vintage Summary

Marlborough experienced rather high rainfall during the growing season, resulting in high moisture levels throughout the vineyard. Dewy mornings combined with good crops created a sense of nervousness heading into vintage. However, the weather remained stable, which meant we could pick our fruit when desired and the concentration and health of the fruit was outstanding. The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that our Marlborough vineyards are known for – highly concentrated flavours, with underlying purity and minerality.

Winemaking

The individual parcels were harvested and fermented separately, using selected yeast strains for Sauvignon Blanc to enhance varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over three weeks, with the parcels then being blended and stabilised, prior to bottling.
