    Michael Cooper's Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines 2012

    Fine value. The 2010 vintage is fleshy, sweet-fruited and harmonious, with good intensity of fresh, ripe tropical-fruit flavours and a dry, rounded, lingering finish.

    Winestate Magazine, Wine of the Year 2010 Edition, Top 5 & 41/2 stars

    Pale straw in colour with green hues. Bouquet of passionfruit, crushed herb, nettle, capsicum and citrus fruits. Punchy aromas in the tropical end of the spectrum with bright, green lime notes. Lovely zesty palate; rich structure with loads of tropical fruit flavours and a sorbet-like finish. Complex with great intensity, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish.

Consistently rated Marlborough’s best value Sauvignon Blanc. This wine makes up around half of our production and is our most successful wine internationally. A fresh, vibrant wine with intense aromatics, great fruit concentration and a crisp, lingering finish.


Colour: Light straw with green hues.
Bouquet: Fresh aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry, currant, pink grapefruit, crushed herb, lemongrass and red capsicum.
Palate: Pure and flavoursome. This dry yet subtly succulent wine achieves a perfect balance of bright acidity and subliminal sweetness. Elegant wine with energy, drive and a lingering finish.
Drink: Drinking well now, this wine can be enjoyed late until 2013. Great as an aperitif or match with seafood, light meats, pasta, salads or Asian cuisine.
