Sauvignon Blanc is grown in our Marlborough vineyard on stony riverbed terraces, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to give intense passionfruit and gooseberry fruit characters. The wine is fruit-driven in style, with complexity from lees ageing for several months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. This wine is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with intense flavours and crisp acid in a dry style.
On the nose, this has classic Marlborough aromas of grapefruit, elderflower and ripe stonefruit.
On the palate, juicy and lithe, the palate is alive with refreshing ripe fruits and has a rich, lingering finish.
"Appealing for its ripeness and fleshy body, this offers peach and citrus flavors that have a pungent grassy kick and tangy acidity. Spice, floral and mineral details fill in on the finish. Drink now."
"Pineapple and white pepper on the nose, plus a whiff of exotic flowers. Fat, sweet and fruit-driven, with ripe acids and a touch of sweetness giving this round, easygoing wine plenty of immediate appeal. Nicely dusty and persistent on the finish.
