Hailing from the historical Wairau River & Awatere Valleys in the famed Marlborough region of New Zealand, the grapes for this 2016 Sauvignon Blanc were sustainably grown in a cool, maritime climate with abundant sunshine. Fermented to dryness at temperatures of 14- 17˚C, the wine displays the purity of New Zealand flavors. Aged on the lees for 5 months, the wine has a richness and intensity unique to the Marlborough region.

Tasting Notes:

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.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy with goat cheese salad, raw oysters, pasta with basil pesto or grilled swordfish and most of all with great friends and good times.
