Winemaker's Notes

2004 is a milestone year for Thornbury Sauvignon Blanc, with the long awaited introduction of our first fruit from the Waihopai Valley. In isolation the fruit from the Waihopai Valley can produce wines that have bracing acidity and lifted citrus aromas, however when blended with the fruit from our Wairau Valley and the Awatere Valley vineyards it produces a wine with complex aromatics and great depth of flavour. Each of these valleys is a sub region within the greater Marlborough appellation and each provides its own valuable attributes to the final blend.

The Awatere Valley gives perfume floral aromas and a firm steely backbone to the palate. The Wairau Valley offers pungent tropical fruit aromas and luscious mid-palate weight, and the Waihopai valley contributes citrus/passionfruit overtones with bright acidity to keep the wine lively.
