2016 Cambridge Road Down The Rabbit Hole Sauvignon Blanc

Martinborough, NZ

Super funkified Sauvignon Blanc from the radical hands of Lance Redgewell.



About The Wine

Like Alice falling through the looking glass to an upside down world, this is Sauvignon Blanc flipped on its head from one of Martinborough's leading low intervention winemakers, Lance Redgewell.

Talk about pushing the boundaries! This organic fruit spent a mammoth six months on skins and twenty months in old wooden barrels before being sent to bottle.

Such a winemaking process would usually be more suited to a Nebbiolo than a Sauvignon Blanc, but the results are fascinating and absolutely delicious. Yes, it's funky and a little out there, but that's what makes it such an unusual and delightful drinking experience.

Only 100 dozen made.

About Cambridge Road

The Cambridge Road vineyard was planted in 1986 making it one of the oldest plantings in New Zealand.

Today the site is farmed by Lance Redgewell and his family, who work the vines according to organic and biodynamic principals.

Only Syrah and Pinot Noir are grown on the block. To broaden the horizons of Cambridge Road, Lance sources other parcels of organic fruit from like-minded growers bringing all sorts of colours and flavours into their range. 

These are celebrated as some of the best examples of naturally made wines in all of NZ.
