Tasting Notes

A brilliant pale green in the glass, this pure and bright Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit driven nose bursting with citrus fruits and passionfruit. On the palate luscious fruit flavours of ripe tropical fruits and lifted herbaceous notes are finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness. Juicy, crisp and fresh this wine leads to a long and dry, persistent finish.

The clear juice is then racked and warmed before being inoculated with selected yeast cultures. Regular controlled ferments are managed through temperature manipulation with all batches being taken through to dryness.Blending occurs in July, after which the resulting wine is stabilised and filtering without the need for fining – ready for bottling in early September.
Food Pairing: Seafood, especially oysters, white meats, spicy foods, sushi, or delicious by itself.
