Clear, bright straw green hue, abundant aromas of lime, grapefruit pith, and gooseberry; racy flavor notes to match across a thick and viscous palate that carries to a long finish. Consistently great Kiwi SB value for grilled prawns, chilled oysters on the half shell or sippin' by the pool.

A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2011 Matua Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Soft in colour with green hues, this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows tropical and citrus fruits along with attractive herbaceous/varietal characters on the nose. The palate is generous and fruit driven with classical Marlborough acidity giving a fresh, clean palate and passionfruit finish. - WineryRegion: Marlborough, New ZealandVariety: 100% Sauvignon BlancResidual Sugar: 3.5g/LpH: 3.33Alcohol: 13.5% ** SOLD OUT **
Light green in colour, passionfruit and citrus fruits fill the nose complimented by complexing flint. The palate is filled with tight passionfruit, melon and lemon fruit. This is all kept in check by the distinctive and chalky Marlborough acidity.
