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

“It's fabulously fruited and expressed on the nose showing green rockmelon, apricot, feijoa and lemon peel characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity and vibrancy together with fine texture and zesty acidity, finishing long and refreshing.” Sam Kim, July 2018
