"Fruity and layered, varietal and herbaceous, complex and spicy, salty and mineral. Aromas and flavours of fresh sage and tropical fruits, red apple, sweet lemon and fresh golden kiwifruit. Dry, crisp, salivating and complex with flavours that reflect the bouquet, a core of fruit contrasted by acidity then mineral flavours of wet stones and sea air. Balanced, well made, lengthy and ready. Step it up a notch and explore a fine example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2025+."

Winemaker's Comment
A classic representation of Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, bursting with aromatic tropical fruit characters found in this warmer sub-region. This wine displays powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit and ripe rock-melon. The palate has an enticing array of ripe citrus fruits mixed with pungent herbs such as fresh rosemary, finishing with subtle acidity.

The later ripening of the Laugesson vineyard in the upper Waihopai Valley plays a key part of this wine contributing the pungent ripe passionfruit aroma's and tropical fruit flavours, whereas the Hocquard vineyard in the Lower Wairau Valley adds freshness and greener thiols, such as boxwood

This is Good Sav!
