The Vineyard:
The Brightwater Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown in an extremely stony area of the vineyard where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels. To further enhance the aromatics we removed leaves to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone. Our Brightwater vineyard is situated 15km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond ranges. The ‘soil’ is a combination of rocks and boulders, which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun and for ripening.

Winemakers Note:
Aromatic and fresh Sauvignon Blanc flavours were encouraged prior to vintage through careful canopy management. The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed immediately after harvest and a cool fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks to retain the clean, fresh aromatic fruit characters.

Tasting Note:
The 2016 Aotea Sauvignon Blanc has a powerful varietal nose. Ripe fruit elements with
grapefruit and tropical melon are bright and flavoursome alongside crisp nettle and hints of blackcurrant. Well balanced natural acidity runs the length of the wine and supports the layers of flavours on the palate.
