Churton, Sauvignon Blanc 2021
24 in stock
Sam and Mandy Weaver planted their vines on an undulating ridge line between the Waihopai and Omaka valleys in in 1997. This was (and remains) the height of idiosyncracy in Marlborough, where most vines are planted on the fertile soils of the valley floor, allowing for full mechanisation. At Churton, everything is done by hand, on low cut canes.
This European style is reflected in the wine. There’s definite minerality here, mixed with the bold passionfruit aromatics and herbaceous hallmarks of Marlborough Sauvignon are unmistakable.
