Natalie's Score: 94/100

Incredible depth and richness that I rarely see in New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which tends to be zesty. This one is still vibrant and refreshing but it has that extra dimension of complexity infused with glorious citrus fruit: lime and lemon wrapped in lanolin. Long finish.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: Blue Fin Tuna steak seasoned & momentarily seared each side so that it’s still pink in the middle served with a fresh salsa made of lime juice, olive oil, avocado, red onion, capsicum & tomato..

Pale straw with green hues, the nose is intense, with aromas of papaya and tropical fruits, interlaced and underpinned with crisp citrus and mineral notes. The palate is rich and full, an explosion of tropical fruits almost viscous in intensity, complexed by typical Marlborough “sweat” and minerality, all corralled into order by classical Marlborough acidity, lingering crisply on the finish.
