"After spending a decade making wine in the Cahors region of South-West France, as well as collectively working forty plus vintages across nine different countries; Simon and Lauren have returned back to New Zealand to make wine under their own label ‘A Thousand Gods’. Their aim is to make wines they can call their own, both representative of site, yet in their own way, surprisingly unique.
Working closely with their biodynamic grower in the Waihopai Valley of Marlborough, meticulously farmed grapes are hand-picked and undergo wild fermentation. No additions, fining or filtration processes are used. Instead, thoughtful guidance into becoming wines that are generous and approachable, yet
also complex and cellar-worthy.
Sauvignon Blanc, 75% whole bunch pressed and 25% 5-day maceration on skins. 100% old barrel and puncheon ageing for 11 months then conditioned in bottle for a further 6 months. Minerality, texture and elegance with botanic, tropical and citrus fruit notes and a long acid drive. Unfined, unfiltered, no added sulphites..." - A Thousand Gods
