Description

  • Dry style
  • Grapefruit & passionfruit
  • Fresh herb
  • Crisp & crunchy

"Offering fabulous fruit purity and vibrancy, the wine shows passionfruit, kiwifruit, rockmelon and citrus peel aromas on the nose, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate delivering terrific fruit power and persistency. It's upfront and tasty with a lengthy vibrant finish. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Vibrant, very fresh with a rush of fresh herb aromas then tropical fruits suggesting mango, lychee and pineapple. Citrus and apple then mineral moments of wet stone. A rather nicely complete bouquet. On the palate - crisp and crunchy texture, flavours of citrus then tropical. Lighter weighted example with a vibrant fresh herb finish. Balanced and well made, ready to enjoy from today and through 2023" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

"Intense aromatics, with attractive grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon zest and flinty complexity. A high quality, concentrated, vibrantly flavoured wine, with well-handled sulphides giving complexity. Impressive" New Zealand Wine Rater

"Well worth trying, this single-vineyard wine was grown in the lower Wairau Valley.  Fresh and punchy, it is highly aromatic, with very good intensity of ripely herbaceous flavours, dry and lingering" Winestate New Zealand

Pale lemon colour in the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, zesty lemon peel and clean minerality. An intense and weighty palate showing layers of citrus and nettle. A fine thread of oyster shell and minerality lead to a pure and elegant finish.

Selected from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point area of Marlborough. Close to the ocean, this sub-region experiences long hot days balanced by the effect of cooling sea breezes at night. The 2020 vintage started with cool spring weather which extended the length of flowering, leading to open bunches. A long and hot growing season led to lower crop levels with increased intensity of expressive tropical characteristics. Ripening steadily throughout the growing period, the fruit was continually monitored until a balance of flavour, acidity and physiological ripeness was reached.

During a cool evening, the vineyard was machine harvested and the grapes quickly transported to the winery where they were destemmed and pressed. After settling, the juice was fermented at cool temperatures and racked off lees quickly to retain the vibrant fruit flavours and freshness of this Sauvignon Blanc.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with pan-fried scallops, soft Goat’s cheese or Marlborough mussels.
