Marlborough's natural endowments are breathtaking to behold, the vastness and bounty of this beautiful land stirs the imagination and yields no finer example of Sauvignon Blanc than Braided River. The principal vineyard for Braided River sits on the confluence of the mighty Wairau and Waihopai Rivers in Marlborough. Riper characters here are achieved at lower sugar levels, offering great intensity and style at moderate alcohol levels.
Braided River's winemaking team are passionate about allowing Sauvignon Blanc's unique character to flourish in the vineyard, they work gently with minimal handling throughout vinification to ensure every glass is filled with the vivid signature. Gently crushed and pressed to minimise skin contact, the juices are settled at cool temperatures. Components are individually fermented, long and cool, with select strains of yeast to showcase their unique personalities. Once assembled, after a month resting on fine lees, each batch plays a role in the style of the finished wine as it was bottled fresh and early.
TASTING NOTES
Light straw in colour. Lifted aromas of crushed lime and grapefruit dart from the glass and over the palate to excite the senses. Every sip of this superb Sauvignon Blanc expresses pure Marlborough magic, the palate is instantly rich and mouth filling before the juicy acidity refreshes the mouth and provides the vehicle for a long, fine, flavour packed finish. Enjoy with shellfish or goat's cheese souffle.
