The Ti Point Marlborough estate vineyard consists of 60 hectares of plantings on the sunny southern side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley. This is a classic Marlborough vineyard site of stones and overlying silts and with its north facing aspect, captures the sun's heat during the crucial ripening period. It has been said that there is no wine anywhere in the world that tastes like the wine of Marlborough – the balance of extraordinary purity and intensity of flavors set around impressive aroma, distinctive fruit characteristics and appealing balanced acidity is superb. The Marlborough region represents 80% of all plantings in New Zealand. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is predominantly cold-fermented in stainless steel to retain its famed “zing”.
