Winemakers Notes

As always, with this wine, we are attempting to capture the ‘essence of Marlborough’. In total, we have selected six parcels of fruit to craft this wine. Five of the parcels are from the Wairau Valley and surrounds and there is a dash of fruit from the Awatere Valley. Each site adds a different aspect to the finished product, thus allowing us to give you an overview of what this wonderful region can achieve with 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.

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

“Fresh and vibrant, the immediately appealing bouquet shows feijoa, apricot, green rockmelon and lemon peel characters, leading to a delectably expressed palate that is lively and refreshing. The wine offers lovely fruit purity and intensity, finishing succulent and lingering.” Sam Kim, July 2018
