Vineyards Estate vineyard in the smaller Awatere Valley (“with fast flowing water” in Maori), Marlborough, New Zealand. Alluvial Soil.
Winemaking Our Unparalleled Sauvignon Blanc is the finest expression of this popular varietal. The region of Awatere is a cooler sub region of Marlborough with distinctive alluvial soils. The wines from Awatere have high acidity and a gravelly mineral character. The fermentation was conducted cool to preserve the delicate aromas of Sauvignon Blanc.
Tasting Notes Color: Pale yellow.
Bouquet: Gooseberry and passion fruit.
Taste: Crisp with minerality.
Food Pairing Pairs wonderfully with a crisp arugula salad with squash and goat cheese.
