STRATUM 2009 SAUVIGNON BLANC
The Stratum 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on our Rowley Crescent, Sandy Creek and Stoney Range vineyards that are situated at either end of Rapaura Road in heart of Marlborough.
The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to the winery in Waipara for immediate processing. After a gentle pressing the juice was settled before being racked to fermentation. The juice was innoculated with yeast and cool fermented for an average of 17 days. Following three months of lees contact the wine was blended, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
The Stratum 2009 Sauvignon Blanc displays abundant aromas of gooseberries and capsicum on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively showing rich concentration and a long lingering finish. A wine to be enjoyed over the next two to three years.
