    DESCRIPTION

    The 2013 vintage in Central Otago began in spring with some nervous late nights spent frost fighting. This was thankfully followed by a warm, dry and settled summer which resulted in great canopies and exceptional fruit quality. A cool finish to the season also meant the Sauvignon Blanc harvEstate was a little later than usual at Pisa. But like much of the Estate, flavours in the fruit came advantageously early so ferments were bursting with aromas at balanced sugar levels.

    MATURATION:

    • 94% tank matured on light fluffy lees and 6% matured in French oak barrels with weekly stirring of the lees.
    STYLE:
    • Bright, vibrant, fresh aromatiCellar Selection complimented by texture and depth on the palate with a mineral finish.
    TASTING NOTES:
    • Pale straw in colour with aromatiCellar Selection typical of a lively New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc displaying freshly cut pineapple and pink grapefruit notes.
    • The wild fermented barrel component adds another dimension of ripe stone fruit aromatiCellar Selection with subtle creamy notes and texture across the palate with refined minerality.
