This wine is from Ara. Marlborough, New Zealand.  It is a place where the essential elements of land, climate and people converge  into a clear pathway to great wine. Our fusion of old word tradition and new world innovation has shaped a new generation for Marlborough wine, combining pure fruit expression with texture elagance and refinement

The wine is sourced from specially selected sites within Ara's single estate vineyard to deliver the perfect balance of renowned Marlborough exuberance and fruit expression and refinement that provides the elegance and texture you can expect from Ara.

Winemaking

The backbone of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is composed of fruit with restrained mineral and stonefruit characters typical of close planted, low yielding vines at Ara.  The aromatics are accentuated by fruit from some of Ara's  more vigorous leafy parcels that show the classical Marlborough pungency.  The grape harvest extended from Mid March to the latter half of April 2010.  Earlier and later picks of the blend components also contributed to the contrast of herbaceous ripeness.  The different parcels were fermented separately with long slow cool ferments of approximately 20 days.  The wine was aged on yeast lees for about four months prior to racking, blending and fining, then bottled in October 2010.
