Gently pressed to capture and enhance the subtle flavour nuances from each vineyard site, the wine is fruit forward in style yet delicately structured with a long, crisp finish.

Tasting Notes

Pale lime to pale straw. Vibrant fresh lemon zest gives way to distinctive freshly opened passionfruit aromas. The palate has an overwhelming sense of vitality. Honeydew melon to peach flesh aromas and carried perfectly on a vibrant lime acidity line. The finish is long and multi-dimensional.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw with green hue. A precise aromatic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Ripe lime and green apple notes meld with fresh herbs and a hint of flowing spring water. The wine shows lovely balance across the palate with attractive fruit purity which is carried long towards the chalky, textural finish.
