Sixty percent of the fruit for Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the estate's vineyard, which is situated just 18 meters (60 feet) above sea level on the banks of Taylor River near the mouth of Cloudy Bay. The soil consists of free-draining alluvial loams over deep, stony river deposits. Thirteen hectares (32 acres) are planted to the single varietal, Sauvignon Blanc, using mass selected
clones. The remaining fruit is purchased from the adjoining Meadowbank vineyard.
Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with
passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp
acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish.
