Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc Wairau Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Minerality, Umami, old foreshore, sea salt, and lime is the backbone to this wine. It is lemongrass, limes and lemons, with subtle understated fresh mint and rock melon. A wine dedicated to its vineyard with texture, supported by ripe, crunchy, 'intelligent' acidity. It is a Sauvignon Blanc, suited to a variety of foods; from melon wrapped in prosciuto, shellfish, to light Thai dishes infused with coriander and lemongrass.
