The 2022 Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc has a striking bouquet of citrus and green tropical fruit evolves to layers of snow pea, currants and saline minerality. A juicy tropical palate with citrus zest flows to a generous mid-palate of herbal elements complimenting the layers of fruit. A bright acid line delivers a long finish and Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc’s hallmark oyster shell minerality.

Winery & Vintage Info

It's not just the grinding winds from the west or the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the towering peak that looms over Marlborough's Awatere Valley. It's not just the deep, rocky soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers that moulded the landscape. It's not just the arid climate marked by sun-drenched days and cold nights. It's the combination of all those things together that shape the inimitable character, flavours and textures of Vavasour wines.

The Awatere Valley is a sub-appellation within Marlborough. It has deep Greywacke soils compacted over millions of years by ancient glaciers. Huge boulders, carried down the Awatere River, are strewn across the valley floor. River shingles, gravels and silts help bind these large rocks.

Marquee sites in the lower Awatere Valley, are noteworthy for their wide diurnal temperature swings, contributing to strong personality and incredible balance in the wines. Soils are low in fertility with stones and pebbles mixed with clay and loam. The rainfall ranges from 279-406 millimetres (11-16 inches) a year, very arid by any measure. Winery Notes
