Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc, Collectables Organic 2019, Marlborough, New Zealand
Walnut Block wines are created through dedication in the vineyard and attention to preserving the complex flavours and aromas through careful winemaking.
A vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with lovely melded aromatic notes of tropical fruits. The smooth, textured palate is concentrated with passionfruit and citrus flavours. Well integrated natural acidity leaves a pure and lengthy finish.
Certified Organic by BioGro New Zealand. Located in Marlborough’s premium Rapaura sub region our commitment to organics allow the vineyard’s unique characters to be expressed due to less outside influences such as sprays and fertilizers. Depth of flavour and mouthfeel improves as the vines become more self-sufficient and naturally balanced.
HARVEST & WINEMAKING
