Golden straw yellow.
Fresh herb, lime zest and ripe passion-fruit.
Gooseberry and tropical fruits are supported by a denser mid-palate from ageing on the lees. The excellent concentration provides a lengthy and persistence finish.
Shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams, fish, chicken, asparagus, salads or simply as an aperitif.
Fruit hand harvested from our Rapuara Vineyard, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks after gentle pressing. We have used the best strains of yeast most suited to the distinctive aromatics of Marlborough Sauvignon. Lees aging prior to bottling has developed mid-palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.
"Lemon-lime flavors and green apple skin notes offer refreshment on a light body, with herbal shadings lingering. Drink now."
"Made from hand-harvested fruit grown on the Rapaura Vineyard, this is a delectable sauvignon filled with lush fruit flavours. The inviting bouquet shows grapefruit, passionfruit, mango and lime zest characters with a hint of musky complexity. The palate is powerful and concentrated, and delivers loads of tasty fruit flavours backed by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2020."
