STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
2019 was a stunning year in the vineyard with a warm, dry summer and slightly lower crops that produced juicy and ripe Sauvignon Blanc with lifted aromatics and intense flavour. Three quarters from the Wairau and the remainder from our Awatere vineyard with each block contributing its own characters. Combined, these provide a wonderful array of flavours.
This wine has typically lifted Marlborough aromatics and these match with a palate that has finesse and texture. Lovely ripe passionfruit aromas are complemented with green grass and lime notes. The palate is light and fresh with delicious citrus notes and a chalky, crisp finish.
