This bright, exciting wine offers refreshing citrus wrapped up with layers of tropical fruits. At 9.5% alc/vol this wine is 25% naturally lighter in alcohol compared to our standard Giesen Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from across the length and breadth of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough. All vineyards have a stony soil profile that allows drainage which helps with early flavour development in the fruit and are vineyards that typically have slower ripening because of cooler nights. This helps retain freshness and vibrancy in the fruit, but low in sugar content.

WINEMAKING

The early harvested fruit is pressed to tank for fermentation. A controlled ferment using yeasts that are hand selected for their texture and ability to express aromatic characters are used. During the fermentation process, the sugars in the fruit are converted to alcohol by yeast. Therefore the lower the starting sugar content of the fruit, the lower the alcohol content of the final wine. The ferment is stopped to retain some natural sweetness that helps to balance the classic Marlborough acidity. The wine is blended soon after fermentation is completed and then bottled.
