Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: A wonderful array of lime/lemon mineral notes coupled with tropical apricot aromas leading into an exquisite palate of citrus and passion fruit flavors. The focused fruit expression is enhanced with the lively natural acid balance which give this Sauvignon Blanc a wonderfully long finish.

My Notes:

About Konrad:

The company is fully owned by Konrad and Sigrun Hengstler. They originally migrated from Germany to Australia and then, having decided to become involved in the wine industry, made the move from there to New Zealand to plant Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough. Riesling was added with the first planting to produce a dry, austere style Riesling. The plantings also include Pinot Noir, the ideal red grape to suit the diurnal climate of Marlborough.
