Braided River's winemaking team are passionate about allowing Sauvignon Blanc's unique character to flourish in the vineyard, they work gently with minimal handling throughout vinification to ensure every glass is filled with the vivid signature. Gently crushed and pressed to minimise skin contact, the juices are settled at cool temperatures. Components are individually fermented, long and cool, with select strains of yeast to showcase their unique personalities. Once assembled, after a month resting on fine lees, each batch plays a role in the style of the finished wine as it was bottled fresh and early.
 
Light straw in colour. Lifted aromas of crushed lime and grapefruit dart from the glass and over the palate to excite the senses. Every sip of this superb Sauvignon Blanc expresses pure Marlborough magic, the palate is instantly rich and mouth filling before the juicy acidity refreshes the mouth and provides the vehicle for a long, fine, flavour packed finish. Enjoy with shellfish or goat's cheese souffle.
The confluence of the might Wairau and Waihopai rivers is the site of the Braided River vineyards in Marlborough

Created over thousands of years, these vineyards showcase perfect soil structures and microclimates that consistently produce grapes with concentrated flavours and excellent varietal expression.

Braided River

The river rocks, stones and free draining alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils of Braided River's Marlborough vineyards restrict the root and shoot growth of the vines. This allows the viticulturist to manage the vines in a controlled fashion to keep the vine in balance and thus focus the vines energy into the fruit ripening process.

The end result is grapes with concentrated, ripe-flavours and aromas with excellent varietal expression. The depth of character of the fruit handed on to the winemaker is outstanding.
