The Cloud Factory Sauvignon is judiciously sourced from 3 vineyard sites between the Waihopai, Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Fruit for this wine comes from vineyards throughout Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. From the coastal vineyard of Rarangi (coastal pea gravels, sand and silts, cooler coastal site) up through the central (old river bed gravels with think fertile top soil) and southern valley vineyards (clay loams over silts and gravels, warm sheltered site ) to the Rapaura area vineyards (stoney river bed soils). The vines are grown on the VSP trellis system to give optimal cropping to gain maximum flavour during the growing season. Grapes are picked and immediately pressed to tanks for clarification. The fruit is gently pressed, cold settled, racked and cool fermented with selected yeast strains to enhance the unique aromas and flavours. Each individual parcel is then racked, before being blended together to create this generous full-textured style. The wine is then filtered, and bottled to retain & capture the remarkable freshness of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
