Description

Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc

Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc especially has intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme. In addition we can find passion fruit and melon highlights.

Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough. They combine especially well with the more tropical notes from the Wairau Valley vineyards.

Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc is a stylish and pleasantly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish. http://www.tinpothut.co.nz/About+Us.html

Fiona Turner’s Tinpot Hut began in 2003. Fiona and husband Hamish established their own 50 acre vineyard in the emerging sub-region of Blind River. This area is just south of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley.

The original Tinpot Hut is an historic mustering hut nestled high in the hills of Marlborough.

Tinpot Hut’s owner and winemaker Fiona Turner began developing her Blind River “Home Block” vineyard in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley with husband Hamish in 2005.

Now fully mature, the Home Block’s Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling especially are the foundation of Tinpot Hut wines today.

In addition, parcels of Blind River Grüner Veltliner and Hawkes Bay Syrah add also varietal diversity to the range.

Originally part of a large sheep farming station, Fiona acknowledged the origins of her Home Block by naming her range of wines after the historic “Tinpot Hut”; a Marlborough landmark especially frequented by local high country musterers.

This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc especially has signature blackcurrant, lemongrass & fresh thyme flavours with a distinctive mineral palate.

Tinpot Hut Mckee Vineyard Gruner Veltliner 2017

Delicate aromas of orange blossom, citrus and stonefruit blend with hints of honeysuckle. Flavours of white peach mingle well with the subtle peppery spice notes. Mineral complexity gives this wine a clean and crisp appeal. The balance of the fruit, acidity and phenolics work very well together and lead to a long dry finish.

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2020

A potent medley of honeydew and rock melon with notes of blackcurrant intermingled with layers of delicate citrus blossom and a smoky, dill-like complexity.

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2018

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak. The wine was held in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling. Clear, pale straw in colour with fresh, delicate perfumes of stoned fruit, honeysuckle and almond blossom. On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
