Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2016 sauvignon blanc, followed by nectarine and lemongrass tones. The palate is fresh and focused with ripe citrus, stonefruit, fennel and mineral notes lingering on the persistent finish. Grapes for our sauvignon blanc are sourced from estate and grower vineyards located in the Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick and Brancott sub-regions of the Wairau Valley. Soils range from free draining stony on the valley floor to aged alluvial loams containing some clay. The majority of fruit is grown on a vertical shoot positioned (VSP) trellis with a small number of blocks on Scott-Henry. Perfect Pairings Our Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious partner to a tomato and goat curd salad drizzled with fresh basil oil.
