CHURTON BEST END MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC 18
Best End Sauvignon Blanc literally is made from the best end of Churton Estate's biodynamically farmed Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. Ripe flavours and a full body are balanced by vibrant fresh acidity, which in turn is supported by creamy notes, savoury flavours and a lingering zesty finish.
This is one of Marlborough's best whites and one of New Zealand's greatest wines. It expresses the Weaver family's desire to express Marlborough in the glass across the gamut of classic French grape varieties. All Churton wines are certified organic with Bio-Gro New Zealand and are also made from biodynamically farmed grapes.
Churton founder and winemaker Sam Weaver cut his teeth on the classic wines of the world while working in fine wine retail in the United Kingdom. His background is in microbiology and he was raised on a farm, so when he and his wife Mandy founded Churton Estate, it combined all of his passions. The couple and their adult sons, have created one of this country's most high quality small wineries, which lives up to the dream of creating 100% estate grown grapes, 100% certified organic production and 100% bottled on site, nearly all of the wines without fining or filtration. All grapes are hand picked and natural yeasts ferment the majority of Churton wines. These incremental qualitative decisions impact at every step of their winemaking provides exceptional quality grapes which in turn express themselves in outstanding wines.
