Sourced from eight estate-owned vineyards within the Wairau Valley with vines on average 26 years old. The fruit is whole bunch pressed to tank for fermentation and matured on lees for 4 months before bottling.
Brilliant water like colour with a greenish tone to the edges. Leaping out of the glass are pungent scents of passionfruit, grapefruit and herbaceous gooseberries followed by some green apple, grassy asparagus and flinty mineral notes. Zesty passionfruit, lime and gooseberry fruits race across the intensely flavoured palate with some herbaceous grassy characters, green apple, subtle asparagus and mineral elements lying underneath. Finishes dry and crisp with a long zippy aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 13%

Other Reviews.....
If you’d like to taste Sauvignon Blanc in its modern day glory, look no further. The Marlborough sunshine and pinpoint precision in the vineyard and winery is all found here. Sourced from estate fruit in the Wairau Valley you’ll find star fruit, passion blossom, juicy pineapple and guava. The abundance of fruit continues on the palate with an electric line of acidity and sea spray finish. The dryness of the wine takes elegance to another dimension. Sith purity and drive, this is a triumph of a vintage and its magic is captured in the bottle. Drink now with raw scallop ceviche.
