The 2007 Marama has its own identity; richly textured it exhibits aromas of black currant and elderflower with a hint of burnt caramel. The palate is complex with flavours of melon, tamarillo and a hint of freshly roasted coffee bean. A tight and focused acidity creates a long, lingering finish. This wine should develop well over the next eight years.
Wine & SpiritsPale, green-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of lemon, lime and crushed stone, lifted by violet and jasmine. Densely packed but vibrant and high-pitched, with superb intensity and lift to the floral and mineral flavors. Finishes long and gripping, with an impression of weightlessness. This makes the overwhelming majority of Marlborough sauvignons seem strictly commercial by comparison. A lot of wine for the price.
