Limited Release Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019
A collection of O:TU’s finest, available only in limited quantities, in selected vintages.
Every so often our Chief Winemaker sees something standout; an outstanding vintage, an exceptional block of vines, expressive minerality, exquisite intensity of fruit – and chooses to capture its finesse. Small parcels, hand selected blocks & always hand crafted.
Otuwhero Top Block, O:TU Estate where the Otuwhero River, fed by melting snows from surrounding mountain peaks.
Sourced soley from our low yielding estate with very strong focus on achieving the right fruit at harvest time, late picking to guarantee optimal flavour components.
Whole clusters were gently whole bunch pressed, then fermented in small stainless steel barrels, before being aged on lees for 6 months, prior to blending.
Lime zest, red grapefruit, stone fruit – opens up to bolder tomato skin notes over time.
A refined, bold and intensely vibrant Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc- distinctively Awatere Valley, sourced solely from our finest yielding blocks on the O:TU Wine Estate. Bold intensity of ripe melon and lime zest build
across the palate, offset by vibrant green apple acidity. Crisp and full-bodied with exceptional depth, this wine showcases outstanding minerality and length.
