Winemaker's Notes

A hot dry season in Marlborough has produced a ripe herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc displaying all the typical characteristics of tropical fruit and capsicum, finishing with fresh acidity. This wine is a style best appreciated when youthful, however may be cellared for up to two years.

Each vineyard is harvested and fermented separately prior to blending and early bottling.
