Refreshing and crisp, with grassy, citrus, and tropical fruit notes. Herbaceous, but with juicy tropical fruits. Long finish. A great warm weather wine!

Elegant and vibrant, this mouthwatering wine offers lime and tequila flavors that are reminiscent of a margarita, but remains light, refined and distinctive. Explosively aromatic, brimming with spice, herb and peppery character, surprisingly docile in the mouth, with lovely pear, apple, melon and mineral flavors that linger enticingly. Impeccably balanced. - According to the Wine Spectator

The appearance is Bright, light green, with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for. the flavor is exuberant, brimming with flavors of pineapple, passionfruit, stonefruit, and a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering.

Perfumed aromas of grapefruit skin, fresh pineapple, mint, tarragon and lima bean. Juicy and bright but not hard, with very pure flavors of underripe pineapple and pink grapefruit and a suggestion of more tropical fruits. Densely packed, layered and long, with good finishing spice.

Fragrant and complex, with a refreshing burst of lime, guava, grapefruit and grass flavors. Wet stone, passion fruit and oyster shell accents add interest, with bright acidity highlighting the vivid finish. Another outstanding Sauvignon from a perennial success. Drink now.

The iconic New Zealand wineryrsquo;s Sauvignon Blanc hits all the right notes in 2007, featuring lush stone-fruit flavors accented by less ripe note of fresh herbs and capsicum. A fine apeacute;ritif, or try served with herb-seasoned shellfish. Drink now and over the next six months.

This wine has evolved toward scents of honeysuckle and orange marmalade, its pithy flavors of orange peel grounded in earthiness. With a year in bottle, itrsquo;s fragrant and still fresh, ready for grilled prawns.

Winemaker's Notes:

These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough9s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to fifteen years bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavour. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavours and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, crisp acidity and complexity of this stunning wine.
