The 43 Degree vineyard is planted with vineyard rows running in an unusual angle of 43 degrees North East to South West. This results in more shade to the southerly aspect of each row thereby producing a slightly more herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc than other sites in Marlborough.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with a slight green hue.
The effect of the 43 degree angle of these vines is evident in the contrast of tropical fruits and herbaceous aromas. Passionfruit and gooseberry combine with crushed green herbs.
Passionfruit, melon and citrus with underlying green capsicum and a richly lingering finish.
Drinking beautifully now and best enjoyed over the next two years.
A perfect companion for seafood, this wine also complements fresh vegetarian cuisine.
