This Sauvignon Blanc embodies all the classic Marlborourgh characteristics of clean, fresh and tropical. Get amongst it!
The winery writes "Room-filing aromas of black currant, mandarin and grapefruit rise from the glass to be joined by complexing tropical notes and sweet herbs. The entry is fresh and juicy with layers of lime, passionfruit , rock melon, blackcurrant and a touch of red bell-pepper on the finish. Sweet ripeness rides through the palate complimented perfectly by a zesty drive and real focus. Medium weight and good breadth."
James Suckling writes "Aromatic and pretty, with peach, pear and lightly poached apple character. Full-bodied and layered with delicious fruit and a creamy finish. Hint of lime at the end."
NZ Wine Rater writes "A moderately restrained yet floral nose, a little atypical but attractive, lifted aromas of honeysuckle, honeydew, apple cider and even a touch of butterscotch. A full, soft-textured, luscious, fleshy palate with good weight and yeast-lees richness, is balanced by a chalky texture and citrus freshness. A commercially appealing style offering great everyday drinking."
