Tuatara Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The almost extinct Tuatara, cousin of the dinosaur, is still to be found on Stephens Island in the Marlborough Sound, not far from Saint Clairs vineyards, and gives its name to a pair of their fruit driven Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines which are stunning wines and offer incredible value for money. Vintage: 2010 Grapes: 100% Sauvignon grapes from Wairau and Awatere Valley vineyards of Marlborough Wine Maker: Matt Thomson Vinification: In temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Colour: Green with straw tinges Serve: Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany seafood, white meats and light pasta dishes. Taste: A well rounded and fresh wine with a delicate aroma of sweet honeysuckle, tropical fruits and a subtle hint of herbs. An ideal wine to be served by the glass.

Typical citrus flavors, though not as pronounced as in other wines of this varietal.

When the oceans in the havens became too warm then Mango (the shark), and Tuatara (the great lizard) came down to earth in search of cooler waters. It was then that Mango said to Tuatara, “Let us reside on land”. They argued at length until Mango said to Tuatara: “Very well, remain on land to be loathed by all”. Tuatara replied: “That will give me distinction, and I will thrive, but you will be hauled up with a hook in your mouth, cast into a canoe, and pounded with a fernroot- pounding mallet, after which you will be hung to dry like a wet rag”. “Maori Religion and mythology” Eldson Best. The almost extinct Tuatara, cousin of the dinosaur, is still to be found on Stephens Island in the Marlborough Sound, not far from Saint Clair's vineyards in New Zealand, and gives its name to a pair of their fruit driven wines which are stunning and offer great value for money. Grapes : 100% Sauvignon grapes from Wairau and Awatere Valley vineyards of Marlborough Maker : Matt Thomson Serve : Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany seafood, white meats and light pasta dishes. Taste : A well rounded and fresh white wine with a delicate aroma of sweet honeysuckle, tropical fruits and a subtle hint of herbs. An ideal wine to be served by the glass.
