Golden Ranges Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Available by the dozen
Golden Ranges are a collaboration between winemaker and grower, to realize harvests of Sauvignon Blanc which are just right for the style of wine that Marlborough does best. Vinified at the estate wineworks in Clare Valley, the juices and must are inoculated to a selection of yeasts and treated to a period of temperature controlled fermentation, coordinated to retain the vital fruit driven characteristics and preserve the inimitable expression of Marlborough fruit. Components are separately handled, assessed and assembled into the finished wine, unwooded and unoaked without any maturation whatsoever, translating into a vivacious, completely fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc.
The team at Golden Ranges simply can't help themselves, they get excited about Sauvignon Blanc and spend their spare time traversing the vineyards of Marlborough, walking up and down the rows and plucking grapes off the vine. The aim is to collate those parcels which can best display all the exhilarating qualities we know and love about Sauvignon Blanc, luscious fruit flavours and evocative aromas. Abounding with pungent tropicality and fine zesty acids, Golden Ranges is Marlborough at it's finest, moreish and fresh, fruit powered and delicious.
Light, pale straw colour. Lime, lychee and passionfruit bouquet with bright green herb, nettle and lemongrass complexity. A refined, taut and elegant palate expressing ripe kiwi, grapefruits and lime leaf, underpinned by juicy acids and wet stone minerality towards the finish. Fine length and some intensity, serve with grilled fishes or Al fresco.
