About the 2013 Corners Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard & Region

The Corners Vineyard, Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough

Tasting Note

The wine shows concentrated gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas, complemented by subtle oak and mineral nuances.  The palate is full bodied and seamless with a creamy texture derived from extended lees contact.

 

Technical:                   13.5% Alc,    pH 3.22    TA 7.6    RS  Dry  

Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice is fermented in seasoned French oak using indigenous yeast. The wine is then matured (including 8% new French oak barriques) on lees for 8 months prior to blending and bottling.

 

 

2013 Rock Ferry Corners Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Impressively complex, the bouquet shows aromas of grapefruit, peach, feijoa and flint, which lead to a powerfully expressed palate that is concentrated and expansive, firmly structured by bright acidity. A multi-layered sauvignon offering superb fruit intensity as well as stylish savoury notes. At its best: now to 2023. Certified organic. Sept 2015. 94 pts 5 stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.

Deliciously creamy, textural organic Sauvignon Blanc with lime zest, mineral and guava flavours. Long and linear wine that is a perfect match with seafood garnished with a squeeze of citrus. 20/10/2015 Drink 2015 to 2018. 94 pts 4 ½ stars – Bob Campbell Master of Wine

Light straw colour; smoky, nutty, barrel-fermented style bouquet, with honeyed nuances that appear more strongly in the mouth. A well worked wine, not especially sauvignon-like, but intense, deep and quite complex, with a lot of honeyed, secondary complexities. Long, rich and rewarding. 11/6/2015 Drink 2015 to 2019. 90 points - Huon Hooke, huonhooke.com
