"This is stunning and hugely appealing; the wonderfully lifted bouquet shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, jasmine and lime zest aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that's stacked with gorgeous sauvignon flavours. Splendidly expressed and awesome value for money. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2020

This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has elegant aromas of passionfruit and guava combined with a subtle hint of sea salt. Layers of gooseberry, blackcurrant and capsicum combine with green herbaceous characters to provide exceptional length and intensity.

Grapes for this delicious sauvignon blanc were sourced predominantly in the lower Wairau sub region. Grapes were transported to the winery quickly and pressed off immediately to minimize skin content. It was then fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and aromatics.

Food Pairing: Perfect for immediate drinking on its own or a terrific match with scallops or Marlborough clams.
