    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Southern side of the Marlborough's Wairau Valley is cooler and drier than the Northern side. The soils are also much older and more structural with higher clay content. Formed from glacial outwash and wind-blown loess, they are still free-draining, but have a much higher nutrient content than those on the northern side of the valley. This gives rise to Sauvignon Blanc wines that are flavorsome, textural and have a vibrant, greener edge.

    Aromas of blackcurrant and gooseberry with underlying black olive notes dominate the nose. The palate shows a rich concentration of pure Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characters. The fresh capsicum notes are complemented by an oily texture, tantalising minerality and gooseberry flavours, all held together by a crisp acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very refreshing with pink grapefruit, kaffir lime and passion fruit notes that show plenty of concentration and focus, witih lip-stacking juiciness. Stays persistent on the finish.

    Pale, bright yellow. Good spicy lift to the orange blossom aroma. Then round, soft and easygoing on the palate, with moderate concentration and cut to the soft citrus and spice flavors. The dusty spicy quality gives a positive dryness to the finish.
