Description


The belief that the vineyard is the key to a great wine is at the core of Walnut Block. Labor intensive vineyard methods produce consistent, exceptional fruit quality; the use of traditional winemaking techniques and attention to preserving delicate flavors & aromas. If you want to try a unique Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that has the intensely fruit-driven vibrancy of a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but with restrained, elegant overtones, then the Collectables Sauvignon Blanc is perfect for you. 

Among the vines stands the region’s oldest walnut tree, and to pay homage, the Collectables label depicts an adaptation of the 1898 Kiwi New Zealand stamp. Both the planting of the tree and the release of the stamp occurred over 100 years ago and celebrate the unique Kiwi history and roots of Walnut Block. The fruit is grown on 3 cane VSP, lightly leaf plucked to give good sunlight and airflow to ensure healthy fruit. Controlled yield through shoot thinning. Harvested during the cool of night to maintain freshness and flavors. The grapes are destemmed and pressed, then slowly fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature using carefully selected yeast. Extended yeast lees contact adds weight and texture to the plate.

Tasting Note: Aromatic tropical fruit aromas. A vibrant, complex, textural palate of citrus and tropical fruits with a clean, crisp acidity.
