The storms that hit Marlborough in April 2008 headed off to sea missing Martinborough.

The storms that hit Marlborough in April 2008 headed off to sea missing Martinborough. So winemaker Adrian Baker says there was no rain pressure during harvest at Craggy Range where the 2008 ripened to rich passion fruit flavors. Baker allowed a thrid of the wine to ferment with indigenous yeast and fermented a small portion in the barrel. The result is a potent generous Sauvignon with lasting spice and saturated fruit flavor. Decant it for crab.

With fruit sourced from Martinborough the 2008 Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc has a very well defined very pure nose with just a touch of chalkiness coming through complemented with a faint hint of greengage. The palate is neutral on the entry - this Sauvignon is more about poise and freshness with subtle notes of green apple lime and orange-blossom towards the finish. Excellent.
