TIKI ESTATE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020

TIKI ESTATE - Marlborough, New Zealand


VINEYARD REGION: 100% Marlborough, Awatere Valley


VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The 2020 Vintage in the Awatere Valley was warm and relatively dry during the latter half of the growing season. Heat summation was closer to the long term average while rainfall was just slightly above for the whole of the season. Good viticultural practices meant that disease pressure was greatly reduce, allowing all fruit to be picked in pristine condition. The return to classic weather patterns of cool nights, coupled with warm days enhanced fruit flavours, creating wines of great balance and flavour.


WINEMAKING: The fruit was harvested at maximum flavour as assessed through frequent tasting in the
vineyard by the winemaker. Extended skin contact time was used prior to crushing to enhance extraction of
the aromatic compounds. The fruit was then very gently pressed to avoid harsh phenolic extraction and the
juice allowed to cold settle. A balanced amount of residual sugar was left in the wine to complement the acidity and to add palate weight and structure.
