Blank Canvas 'Abstract' Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Grapes for the Blank Canvas 'Abstract' Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the unique Holdaway vineyard, which is located in the Dillons Point sub-region of the Wairau Valley. While the classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is about fruit purity and crispness, 'Abstract' represents an alternative interpretation and is a departure from the norm. This Sauvignon Blanc is all about texture and layers of aromatic complexity derived from both fruit and winemaking. The Holdaway Family vineyard in Dillons Point produces the pillar of blackcurrant, passionfruit and its signature salty minerality, while the 100% wild yeast fermentation in seasoned French oak puncheons and maturation of 14 months offers savoury attraction and complexity on the palate. Matt and Sophie's philosophy is to bottle unfiltered when they can and thus while nothing is taken away, a slight deposit may occur over time.
