Beyond the Bottle

2020

The vintage behind this wine

All-round, it was a great growing season, with warm temperatures ensuring perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set. The settled weather continued as the fruit ripened, with above-average temperatures, ensuring juicy acidity and concentrated fruit flavours. At the time of picking, the fruit was in optimal condition — healthy, with great flavour and integrity

Marlborough

Marlborough is considered the home of Mud House wines. The brand was formed around vineyards in the region. The Marlborough wine region is by far New Zealand's largest, accounting for three-quarters of the country's wine production. Known for producing exceptional Sauvignon Blanc.

Vinification

Winemaking Notes

At the end of fermentation, the wines were aged on yeast lees for four months. Portions of this wine undertook full malolactic fermentation to enhance the texture.
