Zephyr Agent Field Blend 2020
Zephyr Agent Field Blend offers distinctive umami notes that create a unique sense of place. Orange peel appearance. The nose opens with hibiscus floral aromas and a dose of clean salinity. The fresh palate has a vibrant acidity and juicy tannins that perfectly complements its orange, tangerine and umami flavours. Closes in a distinctly dry and saline mineral finish.
Even blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. The fruit comes from Zephyr's single vineyards in the Dillons Point sub-region of Marlborough, alongside Opawa River. The north facing vineyards experience a prevailing gentle breeze, moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine. These organic vineyards are only 3km from the high tide mark and approximately 10 metres above sea level. Its close proximity to the sea gives the wines a distinctive umami note and salty influence that creates a unique sense of place. The vines grow in fertile soils with a Kaiapoi silt loam structure.
Hand-harvesting of the fruit. Fermentation of the different varieties together, the wine was left in peace to its own devices for 114 days of skin contact until hand bottling.
