This excellent Sauvignon Blanc uses fruit from three distinct vineyards around the Blind River, Dashwood and Wairau sub-regions of Marlborough. This gives the wine a subtle complexity which combines intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme with passionfruit and melon. On the palate, underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes combine well with the more tropical notes. A stylish and vibrant Sauvignon with a lingering finish.
Try with summery salads and seafood.
"Some New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have a quality that just makes them stand out from the rest. This one from Tinpot Hut has been a consistent favourite. It balances an intense concentrated fruit with some really lovely leafy, herby notes and minerality that create a very satisfying wine."
The Tinpot Hut story began in 2003 when winemaker Fiona Turner and her husband Hamish established their own 20 hectare vineyard in Marlborough’s emerging sub-region of Blind River. Naming her range of wines after a historic Marlborough mustering hut, the ‘Tinpot Hut’ links the area’s sheep farming past with its current state as one of the world’s most dynamic wine regions. Fruit is sourced from Fiona’s ‘Home Block’ and is supplemented by grapes from selected vineyards. Fiona is assisted by Matt Thomson, a friend and colleague with whom she has worked for many years.
Her flagship Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of fruit from Blind River, which contributes mineral and crushed herb characters, and the Lower Wairau, which imparts lovely tropical flavours.
