Food Match: Try this wine paired with richer seafood such as scallops pan-fried in butter with a touch of garlic, or for a vegetarian alternative, try it with a dish of halloumi, smashed garlic potatoes and seasonal salsa.
Color: This wine is pale green-gold in color
Nose: A complex and nuanced nose of very ripe mango. pineapple, guava and crushed herbs, combined with toasted pecans and hazelnuts.
Palate: This wine has a rich palate and softer acid than classic expressions of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Candied pineapple, mango and citrus flavors interlace with notes of honey and butterscotch and then give way to a long smoky complex finish.
