Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

Color: Light straw in color with brilliant clarity.

Aroma: A distinctly herbaceous bouquet, overlaid with rich, tropical notes.

Palate: Drylands Sauvignon Blanc displays the quintessential Marlborough characters of ripe, rich herbal and tropical fruit. Intensely varietal qualities of gooseberry and passionfruit combine in a vibrant burst of flavor. The palate has excellent weight and balance, lingering in a crisp, refreshing finish.

"Exuberantly fragrant, bursting with luscious gooseberry, passion fruit, grass and grapefruit flavors. Concentrated, almost oily, with lingering citrus tanginess and mineral nuances."
