Gravel and Loam

The sauvignon blanc is a special blend for the Dutch market. The wine is made from the best sauvignon blanc grapes from Marlborough, one of the gravel & loam sunniest and driest wine regions in New Zealand. Thanks to the many hours of sunshine and the dry and relatively cool climate, the grapes get plenty of time here to ripen and to develop all their aromatic power. The large difference in temperature between day and night provides extra freshness and complexity. The pinot noir is made with the best pinot noir grapes from Canterbury, a region on the South Island.

The grapes are harvested in the "Croft Vineyard" in Burham and "Fraher Vineyard" in Waipara. Canterbury is the fourth largest wine region in New Zealand and consists of two large subzones: the flat lands of the Christchurch area, with a loose alluvial bottom of loam on an underlay of gravel and rolling boulders, and the more recently developed Waipara valley, where the loam bottom contains more lime grit and stones. The summers are long and dry, with a high number of sunshine hours, while the climate is relatively cool. It can get a bit warmer in Waipara than on the flat lands.

The ideal climate conditions give the grapes plenty of time to ripen and develop all their aromatic power. The large difference in temperature between day and night provides extra freshness and complexity.

Rijp en prachtig geurig, het boeket toont rode en zwarte kersen, gemengde kruiden, bloemen en wildkarakters, wat leidt tot een sappige smaak die rond en zijdeachtig is. De wijn vertoont een mooie fruitigheid en elegantie, zachtjes omlijst door fijne tanni
