(From 2015 Vintage) These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age, up to 14 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.
(From 2014 Vintage) Colour: Light straw with yellow and green hues. Aroma: Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. Palate: An exuberant wine brimming with juicy acidity and fruit sweetness, providing a balanced flavour profile. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering.
Light straw color. Nose of grapefruit, lemon zest, ivy/foliage, artificial banana, chewing gum. Medium alcohol. Plenty of fruit with flavors of bitter greens and asparagus. Pairs well with shellfish and salads.

Grass and citrus notes mixed with a refreshing rain. unfortunately slightly sour for my taste.
