Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc

Availability: In stock

98 points, Decanter Magazine, April 2017

Pale lemon in colour with intense, lifted aromas reminiscent of passion fruit, blackcurrant, lemongrass and fresh thyme. A complex palate with classic Blind River characters that shine through: blackcurrant bud and sweet green herbs; with underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes. A pleasingly rich and powerful Sauvignon Blanc with well-balanced acidity and a long lingering finish.

Tinpot Hut Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
More information:

Now an established favourite, Fiona Turner’s Tinpot Hut began in 2003 when Fiona and husband Hamish established their own 50 acre vineyard in the emerging sub-region of Blind River, just south of Marlborough‘s Awatere Valley - one of the founding properties in the area.  The original Tinpot Hut is an historic mustering hut nestled high in the hills of Marlborough.

These huts were used as a base for the musterers responsible for moving the sheep from their summer grazing high ground to the low paddocks for the winter. This hut symbolises the history of agriculture in the region and has stood the test of time while the sheep farming heartland has transformed into one of the world‘s most dynamic wine regions. Naming her range of wines ‘Tinpot Hut‘ links Marlborough‘s agricultural past with its current state as a vibrant viticultural centre.    Fiona is a master in her field with over 15 years of experience in New Zealand and overseas in viticulture, wine-making and wine marketing which allows her elegant and contemporary wines to evolve.  Fiona is supported by Matt Thomson, a friend and colleague with whom she has worked with for many years.
