Musk melon, lime and minerality dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy with luscious pear and kiwifruit on the mid-palate. A well balanced, medium weight wine.
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc opens with gooseberry, green apple and grass notes with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied with a good amount of freshness and varietal character, it finishes medium-long and with good balance. Drink it now to 2015. (Oct 2013)
The fruit of our two Marlborough vineyards were blended to produce this rich and flavoursome wine: Cowslip Valley (Waihopai), providing full, soft and luscious fruit weight, and Wakefield Downs (Awatere), bringing strength and focus.
|After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks and fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavors.
