Quality Selection with Heather

Quality Selection with Heather

Dear readers, 

It is no secret that Marlborough produces outstanding Sauvignon Blanc, but what is it that makes our wine so attractive to the rest of the world?

Delta Winemaker, Heather Stewart has been in the industry for 12 years, having produced many gold medal winning wines across diverse varieties. Most recently, the 2023 Hatters Hill Sauvignon Blanc which was awarded gold in the 2023 National Wine Awards.

So, what does Heather look for when producing a high-quality Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc?
The key is highlighting the intensity and concentration of flavour in our grapes.

When crafting Delta Estate Wines, Heather looks for balanced flavours – a pronounced tropical palate with notes of herbaceousness, and a perceptible minerality.

Heather also takes into consideration palate weight. Ensuring there is a notable line of acidity without being searing. She comments, “As a very fruit driven wine, I like to ensure there's an element of elegance and restraint to add sophistication to the fruitiness. I always love vineyards that produce a salty minerality of the palate. Passionfruit, blackcurrant, capsicum, salt.”
