The Supernatural

The Supernatural is a very atypical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Smoky and spicy notes are characteristic of our site, along with richness and texture we encourage with skin and lees contact. 

The 2014 The Supernatural has a beautiful, ripe Sauvignon Blanc nose of pink grapefruit, guava, ginger, honey drizzled pears and orange blossom. The palate delivers a lovely satiny texture and tons of citrus and ginger laced flavors with a lively acid backbone and very long finish. I look forward to seeing how this cellars!

Harvest is by Pellenc Selective Process with selective head harvester which ensures high quality of fruit while excluding all other materials. Six hours soaking on skins before gentle pressing. Settled overnight at 15°C before racking off heavy lees while maintaining contact with light lees. Fermented with indigenous yeast at cool temperatures. Extensive lees contact and stirring for six months. Prepared for bottling with a minimal sulphur addition. Unfined, lightly filtered.
