A lively Sauvignon Blanc with powerful aromas of fresh tropical fruits and ripe citrus. The palate is concentrated with exotic fruits and citrus flavors. Well integrated natural acidity leaves a crisp and pure finish. Made from organically grown grapes.
Walnut Block is the vision of two brothers, Clyde and Nigel Sowman, who have joined together to create a range of wines reflecting their collective experience and passions. Situated in the renowned Wairau Valley, Walnut Block Wines takes its name from the landmark walnut tree within the vineyard itself. The 17 hectare vineyard is located on the Wairau Valley plains, a dry ancient river bed which has created a prime growing area for great wines, particularly intense aromatic Sauvignon Blanc.
Since 2002 Nigel has studied and practiced organics and has become a recognized authority on organic viticulture. Nigel is proud of the exceptional quality of fruit being produced using only organic practices.The decision to farm organically reflected the belief that grapes can be grown with a higher quality than those grown using conventional methods.
