Wine Description

Color: Light Straw
Nose: Tropical Fruit
Palate: This wine is made in a style that expresses that classic Marlborough signature of generosity from low yielding ripe fruit whilst retaining lively and vivacious varietal definition. Enjoy this wine as either an enticing partner for modern cuisine, or as a refreshing aperitif.

    fairly dry and crisp. enjoyable. first white of the shore week 2011. drank it on the "big" beach while watching "definite no" and the "old guys" play Sinatra music during sunset. wished we had brought another that night.
