Stich Sauvignon Blanc is named in recognition of John ‘Stich’ Stichbury, founder of Jackson Estate. The character of this wine typically reflects its origin and season, being distinctly aromatic, intensely flavored and finishing with refreshingly crisp acidity.
WINEMAKER: Matt Patterson-Green
VITICULTURIST: Geoff Woollcombe
TASTING NOTES: The nose is very dominate with lifted florals, ripe white stone fruits and zesty citrus. This follows through to the pallet with the same fresh citrus and flavors of ripe stone fruit, with an underlying lees driven textural backbone and a pure mineral concentration. A perfectly balanced and crunchy acidity gives the wine lift, presence and poise.
VINEYARDS: Fruit was sourced from our 3 estate vineyards on the Central Wairau Plain and in the Waihopai sub regions.
