Storm Crossing Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2015

The 2015 Storm Crossing Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of blackcurrant leaf and fresh herbs. The palate is crisp and fresh and finishes with a flinty mineral note.

Eleven parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were selected for this wine from the Seaview Vineyard. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately, using selected yeast strains for Sauvignon Blanc to enhance varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks, with the parcels then being blended and stabilised, prior to bottling.

Vintage 2015 was an incredibly smooth harvest which commenced around a week earlier than expected. This was due to the consistently dry, warm weather we enjoyed all summer in Marlborough, as well as the lighter crop from the cooler weather over the flowering period. This year’s wines have captured distinctive aromatic blackcurrant notes, with hints of wet stone and crushed oyster shells. An underlying minerality offers the final satisfying balance.
