The Details

In a Nutshell

Blackcurrant, lemongrass and thyme meet tropical fruit.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme mingle with passion fruit and melon highlights. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough combine well with the more tropical notes from the Wairau Valley vineyards. A stylish and pleasantly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish.

Production Notes

The fruit from each vineyard was independently monitored and harvested before being carefully pressed to ensure minimal skin contact preventing juice deterioration. Once settled, the batches were cool fermented in stainless steel tanks using specific cultured yeasts to add complexity while retaining the fresh fruit characteristics from each of the individual vineyards. Shortly after blending, the wine was prepared for bottling under a screw-cap closure.

Producer - Tinpot Hut

Now an established favourite, Fiona Turner’s Tinpot Hut began in 2003 when Fiona and husband Hamish established their own 50 acre vineyard in the emerging sub-region of Blind River, just south of Marlborough‘s Awatere Valley – one of the founding properties in the area.  The original Tinpot Hut is an historic mustering hut nestled high in the hills of Marlborough.

    I had this wine at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. It was magical, and so much so that I plan on purchasing a case for my wedding.
