COLOUR  Pale straw yellow.

NOSE A powerful nose of peach,  citrus and passionfruit aromas complexed with some sweaty notes. Pungent and powerful aromatics  — sweet citrus, meyer lemon  and grapefruit, juiced green  apple then  a tropical note of pineapple core and passion fruit.

PALATE The palate is intense with excellent mouth feel and texture leading  to a long lingering finish enhanced by vibrant acidity. Finishing dry, with a firm acidity that is well balanced by a touch  of residual  sugar and a solid fruit core that reflects the aromatics. A ripe, luscious wine exhibiting sweat, tropical fruit charac- ters with just a hint of the classic Sauvignon  Blanc herbaceousness in the background. Overall a tasty and juicy wine with great length.

VINEYARD REGION 100% of the fruit for this wine was sourced from our River Terrace Vineyard in Upper Wairau Valley in Marlborough.
