Makutu Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough has a refreshing palate with citrussy notes balanced by mouthwatering acidity and some minerality. As a result of the sunny summer the grapes were balanced and full of flavour when harvested in late March and early April. Makutu Sauvignon is full of pure flavours, producing a vibrant and fresh wine that Marlborough is renowned for.
The grapes were machine harvested and fermentation progressed at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks. They were largely untouched allowing the fruit to express itself naturally. The parcels making up the blend remained on yeast lees for two months thus adding a richer note before blending.
Grapes are sourced from vineyards in each of the sub-regions of Marlborough – the Awatere, Waihopai and Wairau Valleys. These valleys have their own micro-climates and terroir which give a unique personality to the vineyards, grapes and finished wine.
