Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Passionfruit & grapefruit
  • Subtle lemongrass
  • Sweet basil

This light and vibrant wine smells like Summer, with aromas of fresh lemon and fresh snow peas. The juicy palate is balanced and has flavours of passionfruit and grapefruit, with a hint of sweet herbs like basil and lemongrass on the finish.

An exceptional growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The Summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level to achieve physiological ripeness at lower sugar levels.

In 2020, the grapes for this Lighter Sauvignon Blanc were harvested in mid-March from carefully selected early-ripening vineyard sites. These grapes express ripe flavours with naturally balanced acidity when the grape sugar levels are lower than usual, creating a full-flavoured wine with naturally lower alcohol. The fruit is gently handled in the winery to ensure bright aromatics, fresh ripe fruit flavours and bottled whilst young and fresh.

Food Pairing: This Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect pairing with fresh Summer salads.
