All Vavasour wines are 100% varietal and true, honest expressions
of their Awatere Valley terroir. A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc flaunts a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs and tropical fruits layered with ripe stone fruit and bright citrus. The wine is crisp, balanced and elegant with a distinctive mineral note that holds up well to rich, spicy foods.
"Pale yellow. Pungent aromas of lemon, pineapple and grapefruit zest, tarragon and anise. Supple and intense, with a captivating hint of sweetness to its brisk flavors of citrus peel, fresh herbs and green pepper. A bit hardened today by CO2 but this is ultimately a generous wine. Nicely perfumed in the middle and on the echoing aftertaste, which offers a tangy dusty quality, hints of minerals and underripe pineapple, and very good grip. I like this vibrant style."
