Save $6.00 (30%)
Colour: Pale straw green. Nose: Pungent tropical aromas of peach, melon and passionfruit dominate the complex nose of this wine. Underlying aromas of grapefruit and gooseberry add zingy, citrusy notes. Palate: The ripe, full flavours and tight structure of the palate reflect the intrinsic attributes of the Estate's Wairau Valley vineyards in what was a great season for ripening. Flavours from the tropical spectrum with very little unripe greenness. Blending the best fruit from our three vineyards has created a mix of flavours, from ripe tropical through gooseberry, which is supported by a refreshing acidity and perfectly balanced residual sugar. Suggested Food Match: Grilled Blue Cod with Kumara chips.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Estate Sauvignon Blanc offers quite a grassy nose with notes of thyme and peas plus a lime/lemon core. The palate is uncomplicated with a medium body and while lively, it is lacking fruit intensity and depth.
