Intense flavors of grapefruit and melon. A juicy mid palate with bright acidity and a long finish. The grapes were harvested in cool conditions and gently handled to optimize fruit expression. Low temperature fermentation enhances Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characteristics.
Wild South Sauvignon Blanc
The unforgiving Hell’s Gate vineyard in Marlborough was the birthplace for Wild South. We had to reclaim the land from the wild; we moved endless river rocks to make the vineyard accessible and productive. It’s a classic Marlborough vineyard of stones and overlaying silts, with a daily temperature change during harvest of over 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The warm days produce lush fruit and the cold nights bright acidity. Our Hammond Estate vineyard is nearby, sitting on a terrace overlooking the Wairau River. To complement the estate vineyards, the Wild South winemaking team works closely with selected growers to source additional premium fruit. This ensures consistency of quality and style from vintage to vintage. Wild South wines show all the energy and spirit of their birth. Fresh, lively and vibrant, they’re a pure reflection of Marlborough. New Zealand Sustainable Winegrowing Certified.
