Winemaker's Notes

As a region, Martinborough's name is becoming known worldwide, with outstanding international wine awards, particularly for classic varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Though small by world standards, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough's largest wine producers, and a leader in striving for quality.

This Sauvignon Blanc displays a light straw color with a subtle green tinge. It has lively ripe fruit aromas of capsicum and citrus with an underlying hint of riper pineapple characters. The palate is fresh and crisp with firm acidity giving good balance, structure and length. This wine is ready to drink now. Enjoy as an aperitif or with chicken, fish, shellfish, oysters, salmon, salads and pasta.

"Fragrant, floral and brimming with passion fruit, guava and lime flavors that remain zingy and elevated through the long, bracing finish. Has everything you could want in a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. 2,500 cases made." (HS) Wine Spectator April 30, 2006
