Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) The warmish 2014 vintage provided ripe kaffir lime and banana aromas that complement the classic fresh herb, lime leaf, jalapeño herbal tones. Supremely elegant yet powerful Sauvignon Blanc with a taut, linear structure, dense concentration balanced by racy acidity and classical wet stone minerality.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) New Zealand at its best, showing tropical fruit, citrus and ripe peach associated with classic Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Lively melange of gooseberry and passion fruit on the nose, generously backed up with zesty, crisp lemon, passion fruit and peaches on the palate.
