Highly Rated & 4 Stars Sam Kim Wine Orbit
Attractively fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows fresh apple, feijoa, grapefruit and lemon zest characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy, nicely supported by juicy acidity. The wine is bright, fragrant and lively, offering fabulous drinking.

Our Wairau Bar Home Vineyard is cane pruned on 3 and 4 cane VSP trellising. The rich top soils of the lower Wairau Valley have long been considered the finest agricultural soils in Marlborough. They give us complex flavours and pungent aromatics. Combine this with the influence from Rarangi alluvials deposited by the mighty Wairau River hundreds of years ago, and we present a wine brimming with complexity, personality and expression.
The fruit was harvested in the cool of the morning and transferred to the winery where it underwent temperaturecontrolled fermentation in stainless steel tanks using carefully selected yeast cultures. Post-ferment maturation on fine lees gives the wine a refined texture to compliment the exuberant aromatics.
The 2015/2016 growing season was warm and dry. A couple of heavy, but isolated, rain events in January and March provided some drought relief and kept canopies healthy and green. There was very little disease pressure leading into harvest, so we were able to pick blocks purely on flavour and ripeness. The resulting wine is an aromatic and generous expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
