Description

  • Passionfruit
  • Herbal & tropical
  • Citrus
  • Crisp, clean style

"Aromas of tropical fruits and sweet green apple, some wet stone mineral and white peach. Juicy and fruity on the palate with flavours that reflect the apple and tropical fruits. Crisp and just dry, balanced and ready to enjoy from today and through 2022" Cameron Douglas, MS, Oct 2020

"Beautifully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows feijoa, lemon grass, lime zest and fresh apple characters. It is equally attractive on the palate, delivering excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy with lovely fruit purity and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2019

This is a wine of great vibrancy and classically true to the Marlborough region. A swirl of the glass produces sparkling hues of pale straw and sublime Sauvignon Blanc aromas of gooseberry, citrus and hints of passionfruit. The palate is fruit driven with lovely herbal, citrus and tropical flavours producing a long clean finish, which is fresh and crisp.

Carefully selected Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Toi Toi vineyards are used to make the very special ‘lighter in alcohol’ Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested in great condition from the Omaka, Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough. The grapes are machine harvested in the cool of the early morning to preserve their flavour then destemmed, crushed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. The clear juice is then fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent fruit flavours. Following fermentation, the wine is left on light lees to enhance texture and complexity for 2 months before final blending. Gentle microfiltration is then used to lower the alcohol and the wine is then prepared for bottling. A classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, but lighter in alcohol so you can enjoy that extra glass!

Get your friends over for a Sunday seafood antipasto! Match this wine with prawns baked in tomato and feta, salt and pepper squid and hot smoked salmon with a tasty caper and shallot dressing. Add a plate of crusty bread straight from the oven with some fruity olive oil for dipping.
