We've put together an outstanding vertical collection of highly awarded, single vineyard Mystery Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from three exceptional vintages, all from the same winery!

Collection includes:

"Impressively complex and inviting, the bouquet shows grapefruit, crunchy apple, oatmeal and lemon peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's gorgeously flavoursome and persistent. It's brilliantly structured by vibrant acidity, finishing long and engaging. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

of stone fruit, citrus blossom, and tropical notes, all supported by lightly smoked oak with a hint of flint and vanilla pod. The palate is equally as complex and generous. Tropical fruits are balanced by lemongrass, fennel and citrus themes. The oak provides a savoury element to the wine; caramel and vanilla notes combined with toasted cashew and spice.

Food Pairing: This wine is a celebration of Marlborough and is perfectly suited to fresh seafood and light poultry dishes.

"A beautifully maturing sauvignon; the wine shows golden apple, dried grass, apricot and jasmine aromas on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that's richly textured and expansive. It's gorgeously harmonious and complex with seductive savoury nuances, making it immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

"Barrel-fermented and oak-aged for 11 months. A rich and textural sauvignon blanc, with obvious oak influence adding an extra layer of toasty complexity to ripe stone fruit flavours. A weighty, smooth-textured wine that promises to age well in bottle" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Nov 2017

The high quality of the fruit, combined with the gentle and respectful approach in the winery has resulted in a wine with an intriguing combination of poise and elegance, balanced by an intense and complex flavour profile. Aromatically the wine gives impressions of stone fruit, citrus blossom, and tropical notes, all supported by lightly smoked oak with just a hint of flint. The palate is equally complex and generous. Tropical fruits are balanced by lemongrass and citrus themes. The oak provides a savoury element to the wine; caramel and vanilla notes combine with cashew nuts and spice.

Food Pairing: Pair this exquisite wine with a Thai whole baked fish, good quality goats’ cheese, or fresh shellfish like clams, mussels or oysters.

Alc: 13.5%

"This is stunningly beautiful; it's fabulously scented on the nose showing mango, baked fig, apple and beeswax notes with hints of lemon zest and almond. The palate exhibits outstanding concentration and depth, wonderfully enhanced by multi-layered mouthfeel and perfectly pitched acidity. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

"A restrained barrel fermented sauvignon blanc, with subtle passionfruit and tree fruit flavours together with savoury toast and spicy oak, plus a suggestion of matchstick and mineral. A classy wine with development potential" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Nov 2016

The high quality of the fruit, combined with the gentle and respectful approach in the winery has resulted in a wine with an intriguing combination of poise and elegance, balanced by an intense and complex flavour profile. Aromatically the wine gives impressions of grapefruit, citrus blossom, ripe stonefruit and flint. The palate is weighty with stonefruit and citrus pith to the fore. The fruit is supported by spice and toasted nuts, a hint of toffee and refreshing acidity. A deliciously drinkable wine, which will evolve and slowly reveal layers and subtleties in the glass.
