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.

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.

As with all fine wine sagas, that of Matua Valley is about people, about two brothers, Bill and Ross Spence, their families, and their dream of making wine finer than any of their contemporaries could imagine when they began in 1974.

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 **

Winemaker's Notes:

A distinctive and aromatic Marlborough sauvignon blanc, delivering bright and lively gooseberry and passionfruit characters with a hint of lime. The palate is well proportioned with refreshing tropical flavors that linger on the seductive finish.
