Sauvignon Blanc

Region: New Zealand / Marlborough
Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Acquired in 2012 by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, Rimapere Vineyard is situated in the prestigious Rapaura section of Marlborough. The region's fresh climate produces Sauvignon Blanc of excellent quality with crisp but balanced acidity and classic lemon and grapefruit characteristics. Hand harvested grapes macerate on the skins then undergo pneumatic pressing. After cold settling, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks at controlled temperatures between 59˚-62˚F. The wine is aged 3 months in stainless steel vats prior to bottling.

tasting note
