Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity. Aromas of lifted passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, and peach fruit flavours, with complexing hints of jalapeno, nettle, boxwood and blackcurrant leaf. A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of regionally typical blackcurrant and gooseberry flavours that linger on the dry, clean finish. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous green-lipped mussels. Also try it with lobster and white fish.

Wine EnthusiastThis takes a few minutes to open in the glass but when it does reveals typically Marlborough aromas of passion fruit, lime and florals with hints of tomato leaf and white pepper. The palate is bright and zesty, making this an easy-sipping summer drop.

Wine AdvocateAfter an initial burst of tropical fruit subsides, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc reveals more sedate notes of nectarine, snow peas and grapefruit. It's medium-bodied and easy-drinking, softening and fading on the finish. Drink it over the next 6-9 months.
