Eight Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Classic Marlborough gooseberry and tropical aromas evolve from the glass, while a strong citrus note is ever present.

Initially lime dominates the palate but the tropicality slowly unfolds and is supported by a sweet palate balanced with fresh acidity.

Reviews

“Part of the Invivo range (Eight Point references both the eight points of the Invivo star logo and the quintessential Kiwi No.8 wire inventiveness), this flinty, vibrant wine from winemaker Rob Cameron displays grapefruit and green fresh herb notes aplenty. 4 Stars.”
Cuisine Magazine, Annual Sauvignon Wine Tasting 2013
“Mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with crisp grapefruit, lime and spice flavours. Still youthful, with a touch of complexity (25% barrel fermentation) and a tight, dry, lingering finish.”

Winemaking

The fruit was harvested at night, de-stemmed and crushed, then cold settled for 48 hours. Clear juice was racked and solids vacuum filtered back to the free run. A number of yeasts were used to help create a spectrum of aromas and texture with average fermentation lasting around 3 weeks. The tanks were then topped up and stirred (battonage) without sulphur for 10-12 weeks. After the wine had gained some lees texture it was lightly fined with Casein and Isinglass and stabilized for bottling.

Harvest date: 24th April - 2 May 2013.
