Winery Notes:

This newcomer is already bringing home Gold and Double Gold at prestigious international wine competitions. It has all the characteristics of a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: intense fruit, crisp acidity, approachable style.

The long, cool growing season and the maritime influence of New Zealand’s South Island really shine through. Honeydew melon, passion fruit and peach framed by a citrus backbone. Aged in 100% stainless steel to give it a bright, refreshing palate. Summer in a bottle.
