    It's lively, fragrant and immediately appealing on the nose displaying feijoa, peach, lime zest and dill characters, leading to a concentrated palate that's juicy and intense. The wine shows plenty of power and loads of succulent flavours. At its best: now to 2017.

    Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues on rim. The nose is gently full and voluminous with up-front aromas of gooseberries, passionfruit and nettles and minerals harmoniously melded together and lifted by subtle fermentation esters elements. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features softly drying, fine-grained textures carrying well-integrated fruit flavours of gooseberries, passionfruit, cut grass and minerals. The acidity is balanced and provides an underlying freshness. The wine flows smoothly and seamlessly, leading to a light, restrained, moderately sustained finish with soft, dry textures. This is a harmonious, and soft, gently textured dry Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, nettly and minerally flavours. Serve as an aperitif, with salads and vegetables and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from multiple vineyard sites, 70% from the Wairau and 30% from the Awatere Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 4.0 g/L RS. 17.5-/20

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.
