13 Celsius® Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from the Awatere and Wairau Valleys in Malborough, New Zealand. The climate and terroir of these adjacent regions vary greatly and contribute to the complex character of this wine. The sea’s cooling effects influence the Awatere Valley climate. Gravelly soils provide excellent drainage and stress the vine, producing concentrated fruit with a distinct herbaceous and grassy profile. To the west and inland is the Wairau Valley, where the dry climate, and cold evening temperatures maintain the characteristic bright acidity of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with citrus and tropical fruit notes. The result is sublime elegance with vibrant aromatic of citrus, lychee, and sweet herbs. The crisp edge of minerality teases the refined acidity with a refreshing finish that defines iconic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
