"Youthful, bright and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows feijoa, white stone fruit, lime zest and passionfruit aromas, leading to a concentrated and focused palate that is lively and vibrant. The wine offers excellent fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully framed by juicy acidity. A delightful sauvignon offering plenty of delectable flavours" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"A gently voluminous nose with subtly packed, dense aromas of gooseberry fruit harmoniously melded with passionfruit notes and hints of tropical fruits. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features vibrant and tightly bound flavours of gooseberries, tropical fruits, white florals and fresh herbs" Raymond Chan

Soft golden colour with light green hues in the glass. Intensely aromatic with blend of gooseberries, passionfruit and lime zest on the nose. A burst of concentrated gooseberry and passionfruit flavours leads to superb fruit richness and a long textural mouth feel with a clean dry finish. Succulent, juicy and fresh, elegantly packed with ripe grapefruit and passionfruit flavours carrying through to a long mineral finish.

This Mystery wine is produced from vineyards in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. The soils are rocky ancient river beds with a mix of free draining stony soils and clay loams.

A stunning summer with cool evenings provided intense flavours and beautiful structure for this vintage.

Food Pairing: Delicious as an aperitif and with long lunches. Enjoy with fish and shellfish, chicken, or match with spicy taco dishes.

sadly, not for me, I shouldn't have purchased a 2016 savvy - possibly for others though :)

Elizabeth - 01/07/2019

Not a normal tasting Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, not unlikable but not for me.

Think a little sharp

Nice and easy .

Richard - 16/03/2019

a little underwhelming & thin with muted fruit intensity... better value around

Steve - 14/03/2019

Purchased for her indoors, meet expectations, but maybe lacked that zing that she prefers, would buy again
