Winemaker's Notes

Mak champions the best varietals from the best wine districts - and there are few better parings than Sauvignon Blanc and Marlborough. No other region in the world produces wines from this variety with such ravishing intensity – deep and succulent yet retaining pristine fruit characters and razor edge acidity.

The 2004 shows all that we love about sauvignon blanc---zesty, vivacious aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry lead to a palate brimming with juicy fruit characters and a citrus twist to finish. Mouth watering stuff!

The deep waters off New Zealand near Marlborough are home to the great Humpback Whale, which grow up to 60 feet long and can dive to depths of nearly 2 miles. An integral part of Maori folk-lore, these whales have for centuries been seen as the guardian spirits of many of the communities who live along this rugged coast. One legend has the warrior chief Rakaitauni befriend a mighty Humpback who became his protector until Rakai's death, when the whale abruptly disappeared – it was foretold that the whale would return only when a relation of Rakai was facing imminent death or danger. Through generations, this tale has inspired the descendants of Rakai, who remain some of the nation's best sea-farers.
