A vibrant and complex single vineyard sauvignon blanc from winemaker Matt Thomson, one of New Zealand's most respected wine professionals. The previous vintage of this sauv picked up superb reviews from critically acclaimed wine reviewers and we're sure this new vintage will too. With a complex, mineral, sea-salty undertone and flavours of blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit, this is sure to stun.
The winery writes "This single vineyard rendition of Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Holdaway Family vineyard at Dillons Point – our favourite sub region for the variety. It is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, being 100% tank fermented, but it offers complexity of texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit are captured alongside the subtlest hint of oyster-shell. This wine is focused and explosive on both nose and palate yet remains elegantly balanced and distinctly salty."
