Winemaker Notes

This wine is bright lemon color with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of, passionfruit, citrus peel and hints of fresh herbs. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passionfruit flavours, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Pungent, leafy and loaded with passion fruit on the nose, this is green, but in a good way, balancing those notes with just enough pineapple and citrus flavors. For a medium-bodied wine, it shows remarkable creaminess on the palate. A long, tomato-stalk-accented finish completes the picture.
WS 90
Wine Spectator

Intense, featuring green apple, pear and lime flavors that leap out of the glass with intensity and purity. Lip-smacking on the finish. Drink now. 200 cases imported.

Marlborough Wine

New Zealand

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
