Winemaker's Notes:

Stainless steel tanks combined with clean and simple winemaking techniques make for a pristine and crisp Sauvignon Blanc. We employ special yeasts during our cool fermentation process to create the crisp and ripe fruit flavors of kiwi, pear, and green apple with distinctive mineral and gooseberry notes prominent. The stainless steel treatment assures that the wine delivers the crisp finish and fresh structure expected from a true Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
My Notes:

About Silver Birch:

Our Silver Birch Sauvignon Blanc is from the famous cool climate vineyards of the renowned Marlborough winegrowing region. Marlborough is located at the northern tip of the southern island of New Zealand. Being on the coast of such a narrow island, Marlborough is consistently exposed to cool maritime weather, which creates the extended ripening period and racy acidity of one of the most admired Sauvignon Blanc flavor profiles in the world. Native New Zealander and artisan winemaker, Drew Ellis has extensive relationships with some of the best vineyards throughout Marlborough, "Our goal is to grow the right grapes that allow us to craft the quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc year after year."
