Description

"Fine, elegant and immensely appealing, the wine shows ripe strawberry, nectarine, lemon peel and apple blossom aromas on the nose, followed by a juicy palate that is brilliantly focused and finely textured. It is pristine and flavoursome backed by bright acidity, finishing persistent and vibrant" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2019

Pale straw in colour, this sauvignon blanc has a complex nose full of fresh gooseberry, rock melon, kiwifruit, crushed herbs and a touch of sweat. The zesty palate is packed full of crunchy green apple, peach and jasmine flowers with a delicious line of salinity, grainy texture and a refreshingly dry finish.

A warm, dry summer lead to an early harvest with pristine fruit, small berries, and great concentration. The fruit for this wine came from the Wairau and Awatere valleys. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and varietal character. This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is approachable and delicious.

Food Pairing: Try with fresh seafood or light, seasonal salads.
