MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC
Mind-blowingly incredible diversity of full-throttle flavor, within a row, even within a bunch.
Grassy, summery, bright honesty with a hint of spill the beans

CELLARING: Drink now for optimum drinking. Can cellar up to 3 years.
Food Match: Try it alongside casual fresh sourdough dunked in good quality olive oil and plenty of dukkah, or for a main course try crispy skinned snapper fillet with warm puy lentils and a hardy lemon sauce.
- Color: Very pale yellow.
- Nose: Fragrant notes of elderflower, guava and mint jump out of the glass, followed
by hints of oregano and thyme layered with passionfruit and citrus.
- Palate: This in-your-face drop captures the essence of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Concentrated citrusy notes of lime zest and tropical guava combine with a lick of wet stones. The palate is dry and gives way to a lip-smacking, mouth-watering finish.
