Love the profusion of aromas on the nose of this zippy New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! This is a consistently good producer of kiwi savvy, and this particular vintage brings with it aromas of spring peas, limes, lemongrass and that summertime favourite of a freshly mowed lawn. Marlborough is a go-to region for Sauvignon Blanc. Marlborough is renowned for Sauvignon Blanc, and the grapes for this one are planted in alluvial soils which get more than 2,500 of sunshine hours a year. Cool nights keep the balance and acidity in the wine. Harvested from two family vineyards in the Wairau and Waihopai Valleys. The 2013 vintage fermented mostly in stainless steel tanks, but a very small amount was barrel-fermented. Try it with spinach quiche tonight.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: sea bass, pan seared chicken, Caesar salad, corned beef and cabbage, vegetarian dishes.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
