Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc, Awatere Valley

Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc, Awatere Valley

The fruit is harvested in the cool of night to preserve the flavour and freshness that epitomises Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning, ensured great concentration and character. Cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the essence of the Awatere fruit, this is seriously concentrated and flaunts a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs, tomato stalk and blackcurrant, layered with ripe stone fruit and bright citrus. The 2010 vintage won the International Trophy for Sauvignon Blanc over £10 at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2011.
