Colour: Pale straw with touches of green and gold.
Aroma: Passion fruit, Cape gooseberries and lime abound. These are made complex by toasty oak and butterscotch notes.
Palate: An explosion of flavour. Ripe Sauvignon Blanc, balanced with oak and malolactic characteristics. A powerful wine, with complexity and persistence of flavour.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc of the highest quality, with great depth of flavour and subtle complexity. The Awatere Sauvignon Blanc shows the untapped potential of New Zealands best grape variety.
