Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

NEW LABEL. Fresh and zingy, the harbinger of summer!
Winemakers Notes
In 2015 we have assembled our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from parcels in Dillons Point, the Brancott Valley and Spring Creek. Each parcel contributes something different to the wine and overall they give us a wine that is truly ‘essence of Marlborough’. As always, our fruit is juiced in Marlborough and clean juice is sent to Auckland for vinification. We keep each parcel separate, and post vintage they are assessed and we choose which components will be used to craft our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Marlborough Sauvignon is always very pale when it is young. As this wine ages it will develop straw and green-gold tints.
Bouquet: A melange of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine backed with hints of herbaceousness and a touch of sweat.
Palate: This wine has a wonderfully inviting palate. It is rich and fleshy, yet retains classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc raciness.

Cellaring
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is always at its best in the first 18 months after vintage. The wine will age gracefully for a number of years, but the aromas and flavours will change.
 
Food Matches
Young Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing aperitif. It is also a great accompaniment to seafood dishes, especially mussels, oysters and squid.
Suggested Wine List Description
Crisp and refreshing, reverberating with aromas and flavours of citrus, gooseberry and passion fruit. Plus just a touch of herb on the lively finish. A quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon.
 
Independent Reviewer’s Comment
“Classically expressed and intensely aromatic, the bouquet shows passionfruit, nectarine and feijoa characters with a hint of musky complexity. It is powerful and delectable on the palate, and offers punchy fruit flavours and juicy acidity. The wine is bold and flavoursome, and is hugely appealing.” Sam Kim, 2015
