About the 2017 3rd Rock Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard & Region

Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough.

Tasting Note

This is an elegant & summery Sauvy with vibrant aromas of yellow loquats, stonefruits & freshly muddled lime. Delicate suggestions of citrus blossom, straw and wet river stones provide complexity to the bouquet. Strikingly juicy on the palate, the wine has medium weight, light creaminess & a crisp acidity, supported by lengthy flavours of nectarine, lime & chalk.

Technical:            Alc13.0%      pH 3.12      TA 6.0 g/l      RS 3.8 g/l 


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.


Sauvignon Blanc is becoming more and more diverse in this country as we all discover the characteristics of sub regions within regions. At Rock Ferry we like our Sauvignon Blanc to be dry and have expressive depth and texture. The grapes for our 2017 3rd Rock Sauvignon Blanc were harvested in the cool morning and the juice cold settled for 48 hours prior to racking to stainless steel tanks. Organic cultivated yeasts were used for fermentation. The wine was matured on lees for 6 months prior to being racked and filtered for bottling.



2017 3rd Rock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Full of personality, the youthful 2017 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at Rapaura and handled entirely in tanks. Light lemon/green, it is full of personality, with mouthfilling body, fresh, concentrated, ripe, tropical fruit flavours to the fore, a herbaceous undercurrent, and excellent balance, vigour and depth. 5 Stars - Michael Cooper
