Crushed and Cured

Blank Canvas, Holdaway Vineyard, Marlborough, Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, 2023


A classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, being 100% tank fermented, it offers complexity of texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passion fruit. This wine is focused and explosive on both nose and palate yet remains elegantly balanced.

The fruit comes from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point subregion located on the coastal fringe of the Wairau Valley. This vineyard belongs to the Holdaway family, who have been farming in Marlborough for generations. They practise sustainable viticulture, using their own compost and mulching preparations to maintain organic matter in the soil.
