Churton Best End Sauvignon Blanc

Only 240 cases made, one of the best Savs in the country. 

Aromas of barbecued pineapple, toasted cashews, spring flowers and honey. A body more akin to a Chardonnay featuring complex citrus and yellow stonefruit flavours with roasted fennel and a long full finish.

Hand picked, whole bunch pressed to 100% French puncheons where it was fermented slowly, and resting a further 14 months on lees. Lightly filtered, unfined

A single block of 1.26 hectares that consistently produces the best fruit - this is on a north-facing slope exposed to the dominant winds, tempering bunch sizes and results in low yields of intensely flavoured fruit..

 

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.

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.
