    Closure: Stelvin
    Brilliant pale straw colour with hints of green to the edges and a watery hue. Lifted passionfruit and lime aromas intermingle with some herbaceous gooseberries, green apple and spice. Mouth watering passionfruit and green apple flavours meld into grassy gooseberry characters with subtle notions of asparagus, limes and flinty minerals chiming in on the back half. Finishes dry with fresh crunchy acidity and a zippy aftertaste.

    Marlborough sauvignon blanc with seriousness in its furrowed brow.
    Grapefruit and green herbs, pickled beans and flint. Nice start. The palate is succulent, fine boned, porcelain textured, exceptionally long and oh so sleek. Bright flavours, passionfruit and sage leaf, some strong ‘minerally characters’ left undefined but there. Very good, on the old school rating charts. Drink 2020-2024.
