Loveblock Tee, Sauvignon Blanc 2020


Out of stock


This Sauvignon Blanc is from a small parcel of vines on the certified-organic Woolshed vineyard in the Lower Dashwood sub-region of Marborough’s Awatere Valley. The soil is predominately aged alluvial loams containing some silt loam over stone. Dependent on vigour, the vines are pruned to two or three canes and trained in a normal vertical shoot position. The antioxidant properties of green tea (Camelia sinesis) have been known for centuries in China and Japan, where the brew has been enjoyed for its beneficial effects. It is now used here as a preservative in place of sulfites. Every time the wine was exposed to oxygen (i.e. every time it was moved), 5 mg/L of green tea powder was added (Ti Premium® SG produced by Enologica Vason S.p.A., a registered wine additive). It was raised in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and used oak barrels, with the barrel component going through malolactic fermentation.
