Deep Down Wines is a boutique Marlborough wine company and collaboration of two New Zealand families. Founded by Clive Dougall, who was winemaker at Seresin Estate for 12 years, and Peter Lorimer, who promoted boutique New Zealand brands around the globe with his company the New Zealand Wine Portfolio, Deep Down is about wines forged with intuition and heart. The wines are small batch, low intervention, delicious, and approachable, produced from land farmed with care, vineyards managed with respect, and a team dedicated to honest wine from an incredible region.
Clive has spent 14 years producing distinct yet classic wines full of personality, each with the signature of the land and season it springs from. Deep Down’s wines receive only minimal sulphur during their production, and all are fermented naturally by the vineyard yeasts that live on the grapes, which promote the true character of the vineyard while delivering increased depth, complexity, and texture to the wines.
The first word that comes to mind when tasting the 2021 Deep Down Sauvignon Blanc is balance. The wine is fermented from wild yeasts and completes malolactic fermentation in old, large puncheons, with only a minimal amount of sulfur added. The resulting wine has soft acidity, with flavors of citrus, pear, and a hint of tropical fruit. It’s a pure, accessible expression of Sauvignon Blanc, without the overly intense elements that are often found in other examples.
