Colour/Appearance: Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity. Aroma/Bouquet: A fragrant array of gooseberry, blackcurrant leaf, boxwood, greengage plums, and a hint of tropical fruit. Palate: A medium bodied wine with vibrant acidity supporting bright, fragrant fruit flavours that linger on a long, clean finish. Cellaring: We recommend drinking our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young and fresh, however the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared. Food Match: This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous green-lipped mussels. Also try it with lobster and white fish. Serve: Lightly chilled.

Wine EnthusiastThis shows delicate notes of orange blossom, grass, lime and sea spray. The palate is a little shy but there's bright acidity and lightness to this dainty Sauvignon Blanc that makes it a lovely summer drop.
