Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a focus on freshness and varietal flavour intensity. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly, grapefruit flavours and a long supple finish.

"This is just full of delicious flavours, displaying passionfruit, feijoa and lime characters on the nose. The palate is equally engaging with a juicy mouthfeel and an easy-flow texture. This is what a great Marlborough Sauvignon is all about - great fruit intensity and loads of appealing flavours. Love it!"93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit Issue No. 15 (17/Aug/2010)
Winery Tasting Notes
Intense gooseberry, tomato leaf, fresh cut fennel and red capsicum characters underpinned by the classically pungent melon, guava and passionfruit aromatics, immedaitely fill the senses.
The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly grapefruit, mineral lemongrass flavours and a long supple lingering finish.
A wine with remarkable fruit intensity and style which complements fresh seafood, cured meat and rockmelon, along with Thai inspired salads. Or simply, a fantastic afternoon on the patio with great company and repartee.
Each of Wither Hills' 15 vineyard sites strategically sited throughout the Wairau Valley were harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The fruit from these vineyards was kept separate throughout the winemaking process to ensure integrity of the vineyard and to provide the greatest possible blending combinations
