Fragrant tropical fruit with lychees and layers of tropical notes. Parcels from Marlborough create a wine brimming with varietal character, balance and elegance. The nose is lifted and fresh with notes of tropical passionfruit and grapefruit that lead to an expressive mid-palate with refreshing acidity to balance the ripe fruit characteristics. The tropical fruit on the palate and fresh acidity combine to create an expressive, lively Sauvignon Blanc. Beautiful with barbequed seafood – especially prawns, fish, also mezze plates.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
