Super premium Sauvignon from Kevin Judd, ex Cloudy Bay winemaker. His vast experience with sauvignon really shines through here. It's perfectly balanced and elegant with ripe fruit flavours that are expertly tempered by crisp citrus on the finish. A superb wine.
The winery writes "A delightful fusion of ripe summer fruit and delicate floral perfume – Golden Queen peaches and poached yellow pears; baked apples, mango and rock melon; mingled with apple blossom fragrance and a twist of lemon sherbet. Succulent and crisp, with a delicate fennel-like herbal quality and a dry, textural palate. Quintessentially Marlborough, but a deliciously subtle, ripe interpretation of the classic style."
NZ Wine Rater writes "Complex, characterful, yet understated bouquet with subtle aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit, passionfruit, wet stones and bouquet garni with flinty, smoky, struck-match complexity. An elegant, taut, well-defined, mineral style with complexity, and a fine, flinty, saline finish. It has a stamp of 'class' about it."
