PEBBLE DEW, Marlborough
We have been actively seeking a well-priced Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from Marlborough from grapes sustainably grown for quite a while. Our friends at les Caves de Pyrène may have just found the perfect answer. The vineyards there are managed following organic principles, the grapes are hand harvested and gently handled in the winery with minimal intervention and no additives. Fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts and the wines are bottled with only a light filtration.
Sauvignon Blanc shows fine hint of citrus (lime, grapefruit) and golden kiwi on the nose. Fresh, well-balanced and round on the palate offering a rich, dense and juicy mouthfeel dominated by exotic fruits and a pleasant mineral note.
