Winemaker's Notes

Marlborough's free-draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils provide ideal growing conditions for our KONO Sauvignon Blanc.

With the abundant sunshine, cool nights and a long growing season in this region, this wine is vibrant with intense citrus and gooseberry flavors and notes of capsicum and passionfruit.

A blend of fruits from the Awatere, Waihopai, and Lower Wairau Valleys gives this Sauvignon Blanc the classic Marlborough fruit burst with great palate weight and a clean, acid finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and silky, with refreshing pineapple, peach and green apple flavors in tremendous focus, lingering elegantly. Drink now."
