As always, with this wine, we are attempting to capture the ‘essence of Marlborough’. We have selected various parcels of fruit to craft this wine, from the different sub-regions that make up the world’s favourite growing area for the variety. Each site adds a different aspect to the finished product, thus allowing us to give you an overview of what this wonderful region can achieve with Sauvignon Blanc.

Colour: Marlborough Sauvignon is always very pale when it is young. As this wine ages it will develop straw and green-gold tints. Bouquet: A melange of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine backed with hints of herbaceousness and a touch of sweat. Palate: This wine has a wonderfully inviting palate. It is rich and fleshy, yet retains classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc raciness.
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is always at its best in the first 18 months after vintage. The wine will age gracefully for a number of years, but the aromas and flavours will change.
Young Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing aperitif. It is also a great accompaniment to seafood dishes, especially mussels, oysters and squid.
Suggested Wine List Description
Crisp and refreshing, reverberating with aromas and flavours of citrus, gooseberry and passion fruit. Plus just a touch of herb on the lively finish. A quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon.
