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.
