Marlborough, New Zealand.
An intensely aromatic nose – this is a delicious confluence of ripe citrus, tropical fruit and a hint of something savory. The fruit spectrum is complex and while overwhelmingly "Sauvignon Blanc", the addition of delicate oak adds another dimension. The striking palate immediately fills the mouth and finds a crisp finish to a long and balanced interplay of fruit and acidity. Delicate white wine tannins provide the framework and, combined with an approachable acidity, focuses the palate toward a long and elegant finish.
