About This Wine
A striking bouquet with layers of spice, new white fleshed fruits, quite exotic and very new. Flavours of white fleshed fruits and apple, a core of citrus with lime and lemon, white peach and peppery white spices. Silk touches the palate first then a core of fruit and back bone of acidity take over. There’s a supple fine chalky texture which adds intrigue and texture. Lovely long finish. A wine for all occasions, people and food. Be quick! Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+.

Wines of Marlborough
Marlborough is at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island and is the leading region in the country, being responsible for 75% of NZ’s wine production and 85% of its exports. Marlborough is internationally renowned for its distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc, described by some wine writers such as Oz Clarke and George Taber as the best in the world. Australia being such a close neighbour, we get a great number of brands imported into the country.
Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough is grown on well-draining alluvial gravels, with large temperature fluctuations between day and night. These conditions are great for growing grapes that strike a perfect balance between ripeness and acidity. The result is sauvignon blanc that is aromatic, driven by tropical fruit flavours but also supported by an herbaceous and mineral character. Aussies often described Marlborough Savvy Blanc as full of passionfruit flavour.
Despite many consumers having an idea of what Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is, the wine is actually made in a wide range of different styles. Wine makers take advantage of different clones, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to give their wines nuance and differentiate their brand from one another. You may have had sauvignon blanc from Marlborough before, but it is always worth exploring some not so commercial brands if it is a style you enjoy.
Other varieties that are produced in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
