The cool, dry and coastal climate of the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand gives this wine its special mineral and herbal character. The wine is crushed, de-stemmed and given a cold soak prior to fermentation in 100% stainless steel. An expressive wine with bright citrus, lemon zest, grapefruit and undertones of fresh cut grass. The mouth feel is crisp and clean with racy acidity, lively fruit and a hint of minerality on the nish. This is classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
