"Sits firmly in the cooler spectrum; cut grass, fennel, green apple and basil. The flavours are precise and succulent and when coupled with the brisk acidity results in a mouth watering delicious wine."

"A stunning expression of the variety showing kaffir lime, crunchy apple, nectarine, oatmeal and sweet basil aromas, it’s powerful and deliciously flavoured in the mouth displaying excellent focus and persistency. Offering fabulous fruit purity and punchy intensity, this is upfront and splendidly drinkable. 77% Awatere, 23% Wairau; 14% barrel ferment. At its best: now to 2029."

95 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
"Vibrant, pure fresh and varietal bouquet with aromas of sweet lemon and sage, red apple and fresh basil, white peach, quince and stone mineral complexity. Satin texture as the wine touches the palate with a core of fruit and contrasting youthful acid line. Salivating and slightly salty, mineral, plush and dry on the finish. Some of this wine is fermented in oak – delivery a layer of complexity and depth. A delicious wine, pure in expression, balanced, youthful and well made. Best drinking from 2021 through 2026+."

Winery description
"Our aim with this, our classic style of Sauvignon Blanc, is to put 100% effort into making a wine that silences all the doubters and which restores faith in this region and the amazing quality of the wines from here. This 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from three specially selected vineyards in two different subregions of Marlborough. Two of the vineyards are in the upper Awatere Valley – Shamrock, Trelawne Farm and the third being our certified organic home block here in Renwick.

Growing conditions in the Awatere are characterised by cooler temperatures and slower ripening than in the Wairau, which is all important for flavour development and ripe acidity. The wines from this sub-region tend to be more restrained in their youth but have great texture, structure and longevity. "
