Our distinctive hillside vineyard above the Waihopai Valley was planted in 2000 with a European approach, close vine spacing and high density (approx. 5,000/ha). We manage the vineyard according to principles of biodynamics and organics. Best End is a 1.26 hectare block that consistently produces our most concentrated, intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc fruit. At approximately 185m above sea level, Best End was planted onto a north facing slope of eroded loess on a ridge exposed to the prevailing westerly winds. These challenging conditions produce vines that crop small bunches resulting in low yields of small golden berries. The 2015 growing season was long and cool, but bright and sunny; it produced exceptional fruit in Best End yielding only 4.3T/ha (30hl/ha).


Evocative floral aromatics of spring: almond blossom; lemon tree flowers and blue borage honey underlined by ground stone character. On the palate the wine is dry and full, with intense citrus and white nectarine flavours, creamy texture and a fine line of silvery acidity running through to the long finish.

Details

At Churton, we inherently believe that wine is made in the vineyard. Churton is a 22 hectare single vineyard and encompasses an undulating ridge line between the Omaka and Waihopai valleys in Marlborough, New Zealand.  200 metres above sea level, the distinctive property faces northeast and captures the cool morning and warm daytime sun ideal for slow and long ripening.  Vines are close planted and soils are older and denser than the neighbouring valley floor with good clay content. - Winery Note
