Pale straw in colour with a green hue, this Sauvignon Blanc has a complex nose of honeydew melon, paw paw, golden kiwifruit and a touch of elderflower. The zesty palate is packed full of blackcurrant, cucumber and lime flavours with a lick of salt. Good Structure, crunchy herbs and chalky acidity complete this lively wine.

Crops were down due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this led to an early harvest. The fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and varietal character. This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is approachable and delicious.

Alc: 12.5%
