SAUVIGNON BLANC

MARLBOROUGH | NEW ZEALAND


A delightfully appealing Estate Sauvignon Blanc grown on the Blind River vineyard located in the Awatere Valley Marlborough. Attractive fruit intensity that shows ripe nectarine, passionfruit and lime zest characters. The prevailing maritime winds promote vine health and encourage the grapes to grow thick skins which contributes excellent structure to the finished wines. Bursting with flavour and perfect for everyday occasions.

TASTING NOTES


The nose is fresh, bright and vibrant with gentle aromas of cut grass, nettles, gooseberries and piquant fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is bold, up-front and zesty with mouth-filling flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries and fresh herbs.

"Fragrant pear, florals and soft spice with a lingering crisp finish.”

Vineyard | The fruit is grown on the Blind River vineyard located in the Awatere Valley. The cool climate here is heavily influenced by the close proximity to the ocean. The gentle rolling slopes are on free-draining soils critical to restricting vine vigour which is excellent for development of fruit flavour intensity. The blocks are planted over a series of elevations which contribute balance and complexity to the final blend.

BALANCED


Balanced and well made with a lengthy refreshing finish.
