Fruit for the Marlborough Sauvignon blanc was selected from premium
sites on gravel soils of the region. Highly aromatic fruit is derived from
hot sunny days followed by cool night temperatures.
Our style of cool climate Sauvignon blanc achieves a complete, well
defi ned expression of the variety, region and its vintage year.
It combines the purity of New Zealand fruit fl avors with the traditional
dry style European concepts of classical, seafood wine structure.
""Pale color. Sancerre-like aromas of lemon, talc and white flowers. Juicy, spicy and sophisticated, with brisk lime and crushed stone flavors. Very pretty, balanced wine, finishing classically dry, understated and long. Conveys an impression of chalky soil. Perhaps a tad leaner but more penetrating than the excellent 2006 example.""
