Ohau Gravels Sauvignon Blanc

Ohau Gravels Sauvignon Blanc

Ohau Vineyards

  • RM85.00

Fresh with vibrant acidity, and hints of lime and citrus. The palate is dense and well-balanced with a mineral, juicy finish.

Our Ohau vineyards have stony, free-draining soils, ideal for growing grapes. The fruit for this wine was the third harvest from our Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. The Kapiti Coast is famous for its unique microclimate with long warm, dry late autumn days and cool nights, which assist in intense flavour development during the ripening season.

These grapes are selectively hand-picked from the best blocks in the vineyard to ensure only the finest grapes were used for this wine. The juice was gently pressed and settled before starting fermentation with an aromatic yeast strain to enhance the varietal character of the wine. Additionally we fermented about five per cent of the wine in old oak barrels using indigenous (the yeasts that come in from the vineyard, on the skins of the grapes) yeasts. This provided complexity and texture to the wine.
