Description

  • Dry style
  • Gala apple & feijoa
  • Ripe stonefruit
  • Zesty citrus

"Punchy and intensely aromatic, the wine shows passionfruit, feijoa and Gala apple characters on the nose, leading to a mouth-watering palate that is bright and flavoursome. It is up front and delectable. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

The fruit for this Whalebone Bay Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from carefully selected vineyard sites within Marlborough including the Wairau Valley. It’s a lively, fresh medium bodied wine with a lifted nose of tropical passionfruit and zesty citrus notes.  The palate displays flavours of  gooseberry and ripe stonefruit with a hint of salt. Subtle herbaceous notes add complexity and the finish is clean and crisp with a silky texture. 

Whalebone Bay is a colloquial term given to the shores of Port Underwood in Marlborough, that are littered with old whalebone remnants. It was here in the mid -1800s that whaling was in full swing. The pioneering spirit and uncompromising attitude of these people is reflected today by the dedication of Marlborough grape growers to producing top quality fruit.

Food Pairing: A delightful wine with sesame seared Tuna Steak fresh asparagus.
