This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is consistently produced in a fuller, riper, softer style that develops well. Clean, fresh and tropical, with fruit from several vineyards situated throughout Marlborough.
“Bright, very pale straw-green colour, near colourless on rim. The nose is softly aromatic with passionfruit, gooseberry and white floral notes, along with tropical fruit and fermentation esters, showing herb and minerally notes with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, tightly bound flavours of aromatic gooseberry fruit, white florals and passionfruit are lifted by esters and crisp acidity. This has good energy and the fruit is underlined by a dry phenolic, textural line that provides a firm core carrying through to a dry, moderately long finish. This is an elegant, firm-lined, dry Sauvignon Blanc with lifted aromatics. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and goats cheese over the next 2 years.” – 4 STARS, Raymond Chan
