Grapes from all over the Marlborough Region are used in this blend where vineyards are selected by flavor profile for desired outcome. They tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavor profile, ensuring Marlborough's typicity is retained.

Style wise, they are looking for upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavors of melon, passion-fruit and crisp acidity.

Tasting notes
Color: Light straw with yellow and green hues. Aroma: Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. Palate: An exuberant wine brimming with juicy acidity and fruit sweetness, providing a balanced flavor profile. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering. Cellar: All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and complexity of this stunning wine. Ready for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to develop from one to three years.

Rating
88 Points, Wine Spectator: Really tangy, with Key lime pie, honeydew melon, passion fruit and green tea notes. Great juicy finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 390,000 cases imported. –MW

Wine maker notes
These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age, up to 14 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavor. The aromas exhibit intense tropical fruit and fresh cut grass notes while the palate bursts with passionfriut, citrus and ripe stonefruit flavors. An exuberant and expressive wine that pairs brilliantly with fresh seafood, goat cheese salad or on its own.

Food pairing
Great to drink with anyone at any time. Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
