Wildsong 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough , New Zealand
The vineyard is situated in the upper Wairau River Valley on several old river terraces laid down centuries ago. Planted on silt over free draining alluvial gravels, it has plenty of horsepower available to ripen Sauvignon Blanc in a way that captures the essence of Marlborough.
Marlborough in autumn 2020 was dry and warm. Blocks were carefully managed with shade provided by a little extra leaf cover to retain bright flavours and acidity.
