Description

  • Subtle french oak
  • Lime zest & grapefruit
  • Mineral notes
  • Long, complex finish

"Complex and enticing, fragrant, varietal and packed with aromas of sweet herbs and tropical fruits, citrus and white peach, apple and grapefruit. On the palate - salivating acidity leads to flavours of citrus and tropical fruits, white stone fruits and apple. No mistaking and energy in the acidity and mineral stony layer. Balanced, fresh and well made. A luscious long finish with best drinking from today and through 2025" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

"Bright, even, pale yellow-gold with a green hue. The bouquet is gently-full and concentrated with well-packed aromas of succulent tropical green mango, lime, cassis, entwine with elderflower, spices and a subtle creaminess, freshen by seaspray. Medium-bodied, the palate features mouth-filling flavours of green mango and cassis lusciously, along with elderflower and minerals, forming a rounded and concentrated core. The fruit is underlined by a very fine-textured phenolic and refreshing, lacy acidity; along with spices; the wine carries to a lingering, fine-textured finished with concentration and depth. This is a well-crafted mouth-filling Sauvignon Blanc with succulent tropical green mango and cassis flavours, complexing details of spices, saline and creamy palate, and fine-textured presence. Fruit selected from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point, fermented to 13% alc, 40% was matured in seasoned French oak barriques, on lees for 4 months. Match with Cantonese dim sum and seafood over the next 5 years" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Oct 2020

"This stunning sauvignon shows lifted aromas of feijoa, Granny Smith apple, apricot and kaffir lime on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate that's brilliantly focused and lingering. It's powerful and delicious with pristine fruit flavours, finishing impressively long and lively. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2020

Light straw colour in the glass. Intense and complex aromas of lime zest, nettle and smokey cordite. Round and rich with notes of grapefruit, passionfruit and delicate minerality, with a long and complex finish.

Selected from a single vineyard in Marlborough's Lower Wairay Valley. 

The harvest was carefully timed and the grapes machine picked in the cool of the evening at peak flavour maturity. The grapes were transported promtly to the winery where they were immediately de-stemmed and pressed to minimize skin contact. After settling, the racked juice was inoculated with a specially selected yeast strain and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and seasoned oak barriques. A portion of 40% went into oak, and matured for four months on light lees. 

Food Pairing: Drinking beautifully from release and will continue to develop complexity over the next three to five years. An ideal match with Marlborough's Green Lip mussels, seared paua or a delicate goat's cheese salad.
