This wine comes from a single block (S1) at Yealand’s Seaview Vineyard - New Zealand’s most coastal vineyard. Here our vines battle against the elements producing small berries with thick skins and wonderfully rich and intense flavors. This single block - S1 - is a north facing block that lies on a plateau 525 feet above sea level 2.2 miles from the ocean. The soils are wind-blown, loess, silt or loamy material composed largely of granular-sized grains that are loosely cemented by calcium carbonate. The vines were planted in 2007 and are monitored daily.
Wine maker notes
The carefully harvested fruit from the S1block was crushed, de-stemmed, chilled and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off. A long, cool fermentation in stainless steel followed to capture and enhance the distinct flavors of the S1 block. The wine spent three months on the lees, with regular stirring to help build texture and structure. The wine was then stabilized and filtered before bottled.

Technical notes
100% Sauvignon Blanc

Food pairing
Pair with pork roasts, as well as seafood and poultry, especially in cream sauces.

The estate was founded in 2008 by dynamic environmental entrepreneur and iconic figure Peter Yealands, and represents the largest privately-owned vineyard in New Zealand. Comprising 133 vineyards blocks on 1,000 hectares (2,471 acres), Yealands sustainable Seaview estate is designed with biological diversity in mind. Alongside the vineyards, 25 wetlands and more than 175,000 types of native flora support an ever increasing range of fauna. His dedication to the land has continued to guide his holistic approach to ever-evolving sustainable vine growing practices, not only garnering global acclaim for beautifully crafted wines, but also admiration for his visionary tenacity. In fact, Yealands has been selected as the 2014 Green Company of the Year by The Drinks Business.
