Lively wine with bright citrus bouquet. Citrus flavors, and tones of stone fruits, and apple. Balanced acidity with a zesty finish.

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

A bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and zesty.

With delightful hints of tropical fruits are accented by aromas of citrus and the traditional New Zealand herbaceous notes, this Sauvignon Blanc has nice ripe stone fruit, citrus and tropical flavors mingle with the soothing herbaceous notes. It has a nice acidity with a touch of sweet passion fruit add to the full, crisp finish.

Upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavors of melon, passionfruit and crisp acidity. Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes or summer salads.

Grapes from all over the Marlborough Region are used in this blend where vineyards are selected by flavour profile for desired outcome. We tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavour profile, ensuring Marlborough's typicity is retained.

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.

Tasting Notes:

An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, stonefruit and a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh, zesty and lingering.
