2020 SINGLE VINEYARD

OTQ SAUVIGNON BLANC

This is a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc like no other you've yet experienced!

A complex and nuanced nose of very ripe mango. pineapple, guava and crushed herbs, combined with toasted pecans and hazelnuts. This wine has a rich palate and softer acid than classic expressions of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Candied pineapple, mango and citrus flavours interlace with notes of honey and butterscotch and then give way to a long smoky complex finish.

WINEMAKERS NOTES

Jules Taylor’s OTQ wines are a challenge to conventional winemaking interpretations of Marlborough signature varieties, as well as a personal indulgence for Jules.

AROMA & FLAVOUR

A complex and nuanced nose of very ripe mango. pineapple, guava and crushed herbs, combined with toasted pecans and hazelnuts. This wine has a rich palate and softer acid than classic expressions of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Candied pineapple, mango and citrus flavours interlace with notes of honey and butterscotch and then give way to a long smoky complex finish. 

VINEYARD NOTES

Jules selected particular sun-kissed bunches of fruit that were basking in the sunny Meadowbank Vineyard in the Taylor Pass subregion of Marlborough. 

VINIFICATION

The grapes were hand harvested and then taken to the winery and whole cluster pressed into old barriques where a fast, furious wild fermentation took place followed by a full malolactic fermentation and occasional lees stirring in barrel.
