Sub-region: Wairau Valley
Hailing from the historical Wairau River Valley in the famed Marlborough region of New Zealand, the grapes for this 2014 Sauvignon Blanc were sustainably grown in a cool, maritime climate with abundant sunshine. Fermented to dryness at temperatures of 14-17C, the wine displays the purity of New Zealand flavors. Aged on the lees for several months, the wine has a richness and intensity unique to the Marlborough region.
This medium bodied wine has aromas of elderflower and passion fruit that yield to a palate of citrus, ripe tropical fruit and a dry mineral finish. To the eye, the wine has a bright straw yellow hue and the flavors are crisp and herbal with a fresh acidity perfect for pairing with food.
Enjoy with goat cheese salad, raw oysters, pasta with basil pesto or grilled swordfish and most of all with great friends and good times.
