Gravel and Loam Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Gravel & Loam Sauvignon Blanc was created to truly reflect the environment and philosophy of producing accessible wine with distinctive pure, beautiful fruit flavors and aromas typical of the Marlborough region. The bouquet is full of vibrant gooseberry, fresh herb and melon aromas with tropical passion fruit and citrus fruit character on the palate. This wine has great acidity and length and finishes refreshingly limey and elegant.

  • About Gravel and Loam

    The Onamalutu Gravels, vineyard and breathtaking landscape inspired Gravel & Loam to market a range of wines that truly reflect the feel of the land. This amazing environment is rich in flora and fauna, while the gravel and loam soils are perfect for producing lush and elegant wines. The ideal climatic conditions here give the grapes plenty of time to ripen and develop their aromatic power. The large difference in temperature between day and night adds freshness and complexity.

    Grapes are harvested at 'the Croft Vineyard' in Burham and 'Fraher Vineyard' in Waipara. Most of the pinot noir grapes come from Canterbury, New Zealand's fourth largest wine region. Canterbury consists of two major subzones: the flat lands from the Christchurch area, with loose alluvial soils of loam on an underlayer of gravel and rolling boulders, and the more recently developed Waipara valley, where the loamy soils contain more limestone and stones. Summers are long and dry, with a high number of sunlight hours, while the climate is relatively cool. In Waipara, it can get a little warmer than on the flatlands.
