Deriving from the French word sauvage ("wild") and blanc (“white”) ours is a crisp and powerful, well balanced wine with intense aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and citrus flavours. This light to medium bodied aromatic wine is a great match with salads, seafood and vegetarian dishes and perfectly acceptable to be enjoyed on its own!

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright, light green.
Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for.
An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, stonefruit and a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh, zesty and lingering.
Ready for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to develop over 3-4 years.
Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes, lobster or summer salads.
These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough?’s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to fifteen years bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavour.
