Tasting Notes: The intense gooseberry and lime flavours of this white will wake up tired taste buds in a trice. It’s an ideal wine to have chilled in the fridge at all times, to enjoy as a glass on its own when required.
Winemaking Notes: Sauvignon Blanc, 12% ABV, from Marlborough, New Zealand
Food Pairing: It has the freshness, too, to match pan fried fish, barbecued seafood kebabs or creamy sauced pasta.
About the Winemaker: Lying on the top tip of New Zealand’s South Island, Marlborough has a well deserved reputation for some of today’s finest New World Sauvignon Blancs. Sun filled days tempered by cooling ocean breezes from the Pacific, plus a panoply of soils, classic for an ancient river bed, all add up to the perfect conditions for this grape.
