Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its best! This is without a doubt the best New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to pass through the Graysonline Tasting Panel.
Summer is fast approaching and you would be mad not to have a bottle of "The Raptor" on hand to enjoy with salads or seafood dishes.

Intense wine with pure citrus, gooseberry, mineral and lemon grass flavours. Fruit and alcohol sweetness is underpinned by appealing fruity acidity. An accessible and attractive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright, pale straw on release.
Powerful aromas of passionfruit and blackcurrant with hints of grapefruit.
The palate is pleasingly rich and concentrated with a well balanced acidity that leads to a lingering finish.
Released September 2010. Enjoy now and over the next 2 years.
Enjoy with seafood, white meats, ethnic cuisine or as a bracing aperitif.
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and transported immediately to the winery for processing to minimise oxygen contact. Fermentation was controlled at low temperatures to retain the freshness and zing of the fruit. Limited release of 550 cases.
