Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 152: Sam Weaver, Churton Wines
Sam Weaver fills Debra in about Marlborough’s new subregions, and the broad migration up into the southern hills. Sam drops the “T-bomb” (texture, for those of you who haven’t been avidly following the evolution of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc), causing Debra to corner him into defining the term, which Sam very thoroughly does. Then Debra asks Sam the million dollar question: where is the style of Marlborough SB headed (is grassiness all?)?
