The Lowdown on Deep Down
Never mind its ready-for-Pitchfork-Magazine wine label, this is an honest expression of a Sauvignon Blanc with a softer touch.
GRAPE: 100% old-vine, single-vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
FUNDAMENTALS: Organic. Minimal intervention. Native yeast, slow fermentation that sees full malo. Lees aging for texture. Vinified in a combo of stainless steel and a touch of imperceptible neutral used oak.
PROFILE: Yellow plum, yellow apple, honeysuckle, dusty citrus. Balanced acidity.
