Ranga Ranga Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

From the winemaker:

Our Estate Grown wine is an “old school” Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, fresh and vibrant
with balancing ripe fruit. The crisp acidity carries a solid core of fruit aromas and flavours - lemon grass, lime zest, the herbaceous tang of cut lawn plus a hint of Mediterranean
dried herbs and a touch of Awatere minerality. And it still packs the fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Expectations of early harvest were fuelled by the earliest flowering for 5 years,
but 2014’s heavier yields delaying ripening. Managing yields meant dropping the
equivalent of 100+T of fruit. As a result our fruit was harvested early, well before
the rain that caused so much grief. Our grapes receive the kind of personal vine
care you can only get when the winemaker and viticulturist live on the vineyard.

The fruit was good, the winemaking straightforward. 2014 was once again made
“in the vineyard”. The wine is right on the money, perfectly balanced even in an
“average” year for Marlborough as a whole. The 2014 is a more complicated
blend. As our volumes increase, our small batch approach makes this inevitable.
Matches well to spicy food - Thai, Japanese, Indian, but works equally well with
seafood, particularly oysters, as well as fat cheeses.
