Pungent aromas of tropical passionfruit and grapefruit combined with a subtle green thread.
Crisp and refreshing with zesty flavours of gooseberry, green capsicum, and blackcurrant. A bright burst of citrus and a salty minerality leads to a long, lingering finish.
Perfect for drinking immediately, this Sauvignon Blanc will be at its best over the next two years.

Winemaking and Viticulture:
The vines were pruned using three or four cane vertical shoot positioning (VSP). Each vineyard’s yield is managed appropriately and is dependent upon the ability to ripen clean, quality grapes to their desired flavour spectrum.
Fruit was sourced from vineyards throughout Marlborough, predominantly in the lower Wairau sub-region. The fruit was carefully monitored throughout maturity and was harvested upon reaching optimum flavour development and ripeness. Transported to the winery with haste and pressed off with minimal skin contact, the resulting juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and varietal flavours.
