Bursting with aromas; an abundance of tropical fruits, crisp citrus, punchy jalapeno, and fresh herbs this wine showcases the intensity that has made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc famous the world over.

The palate is refined and classical with a vibrancy of fruit and a mineral purity that creates a sense of sophistication and elegance.

Vintage

Our inaugural Marlborough vintage was marked by optimal autumnal growing conditions, a long and slow ripening period that allowed the fruit to develop great concentration 
and balance.

Reviews and Accolades

Bob Campbell MW - 93pts
Punchy, aromatic, silken-textured Sauvignon Blanc with tropical fruit/passionfruit, cut grass, lime/citrus, lemongrass and oyster shell flavours supported by vibrant acidity. Bright, fresh wine in a classically Marlborough style.

Cam Douglas MS - 95pts
Complex and enticing bouquet of fresh lemon and apple, fine lees complexity and tropical fruit moments laced with fresh green herbs and pineapple. Crisp, dry, detailed and fruity, flavours mirror the bouquet led by the tropical and lemon then lees and herbs. Acidity is saline and salivating, some very fine fruit tannins and acidity along with lees impacts deliver a lush and textured mouthfeel. Balanced and well made with a long finish. Best drinking from 2023 through 2029.

Michael Cooper- 4.5 Stars
Full of youthful vigour, the intensely varietal 2023 vintage (4.5*) is an auspicious debut. A pale, aromatic, medium to full-bodied wine, it has fresh, penetrating, green capsicum-like flavours, vague salty notes, and a crisp, dry, persistent finish
