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 cheese with herbs and mustard would also work well.
