Crushed & Cured

Mayfly, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2023


A youthful and exquisite Sauvignon Blanc with prominent asparagus, mature peach and exotic fruit notes on the nose. Fresh and deliciously crisp with excellent natural acidity and a long citric and peach aftertaste as well as a rounded body and good structure

The Mayfly, so symbolic of the first warmth of summer, drift down New Zealand's crystalline streams and rivers providing food for the voracious trout that have made this a mecca for fly-fisherman the world over

All of the fruit comes from the single Kerseley estate vineyard from vines planted between 1991 and 2008. The vineyards are in the Dillons point area around half a mile from the sea

Fermentation in stainless tank at low temperature with natural yeasts to ensure the single site is expressed in the wine
