  • Dry style
  • Grapefruit
  • Crunchy apple
  • Silky texture

"Gorgeous aromatic and enticing with green kiwifruit, rockmelon, fig and lemon zest aromas, combined with lively palate offering terrific fruit power and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and delectably appealing" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2021

It’s a lively, fresh medium bodied wine with a lifted nose of grapefruit with herbaceous notes. The palate displays flavours of gooseberry and crunchy apple with a hint of citrus. Salty minerality notes add complexity and the finish is clean and crisp with a silky texture.

The fruit for this Whalebone Bay Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from carefully selected vineyard sites within Marlborough including Dillons Point.

Whalebone Bay is a colloquial term given to the shores of Port Underwood in Marlborough, that are littered with old whalebone remnants. It was here in the mid -1800s that whaling was in full swing. The pioneering spirit and uncompromising attitude of these people is reflected today by the dedication of Marlborough grape growers to producing top quality fruit.

Food Pairing: A delightful wine with freshly caught Hapuka and green salad.
