This wine has a little bit of the wild about it. Its personality has been shaped by wild yeasts found in the vineyards and the winery. The grapes come from the Wairau Valley (''Wairau'' is a Marori word meaning ''many waters'') situated along the 170km long Wairau River that runs from the mountains in the west to the ocean at Cloudy Bay. They showcase both fresh, vibrant fruit and a crisp and herbaceous character. This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characterised by its relative subtlety, depth and concentration.
Pale straw with green hues. Vibrant aromatics of gooseberrry, green tea and a hint of perspiration.
Flavoursome palate of ripe citrus and nectarine with refreshing acidity providing great drinkability.
