Room-filing aromas of black currant, mandarin and grapefruit rise from the glass to be joined by complexing tropical notes and sweet herbs. The entry is fresh and juicy with layers of lime, passionfruit , rock melon, blackcurrant and a touch of red bell-pepper on the finish. Sweet ripeness rides through the palate complimented perfectly by a zesty drive and real focus. Medium weight and good breadth.
Grapes from our own estates and select growers were picked, crushed and pressed at perfect ripeness. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at various temperatures to capture the fresh flavours unique to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. A small percentage was fermented wild to build in some palate complexity. After extensive tastings by the winemakers the wine was assembled, lightly fined and bottled.
And ideal match with any seafood, particularly shellfish.

Aromatic and pretty, with peach, pear and lightly poached apple character. Full-bodied and layered with delicious fruit and a creamy finish. Hint of lime at the end. - James Suckling 91 points
