This is a very intense and powerful wine. True to its Marlborough origins, its flavours are a mix of ripe tropical fruits, citrus and cooler notes of green fruits and fresh herbs. It is rich and full bodied but a crisp dry finish provides freshness and length. Food Match: This dry wine is a perfect match for most seafood and many Asian-styled dishes.

Wine EnthusiastPassion fruit and pea shoots mingle easily on the nose of this medium-bodied wine. This is a fully dry and somewhat austere Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, ending on notes of white grapefruit and hints of underripe stone fruit.

Wine SpectatorFresh, with green pepper and lemongrass overtones to the crisp, juicy citrus flavors at the core. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has an intensely vegetal nose of asparagus tips and bell peppers over lime juice and green apple notes. The medium-bodied palate provides a great intensity of savory and citrus flavors with a wicked backbone of enlivening acidity and a long herbal finish.
