Winemaker's Notes

A well-balanced, reserve quality wine with intense, full flavors and a fresh, crisp acidity balancing the sweetness of ripe fruit.

Color: Light straw with green highlights.

Aromas: Dominated by ripe gooseberry and passion fruit notes with underlying green capsicum notes.

Palate: The palate shows a rich concentration and pure Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characters. The fresh capsicum notes are complemented by an oily texture, tantalizing mineral and pink grapefruit flavors with a crisp acidity.

Food pairings: Rich, creamy vegetable or seafood soups. Panfried prawns or scallops with fresh herbs (tarragon, chives, chervil, basil) or creamherb sauces. Green vegetable and cheese-based quiches or marinated goat's cheese with herbs and mustard would also work well.

Cellaring: Best consumed while young when the zingy freshness is dominant, although the wine will develop further complexity if cellared for additional years.
