Our Sauvignons are cropped low by New Zealand standards - this one at 36hL/ha (ca2.1t/A) with complete fruit exposure to the light from early in the season to minimize herbaceous and vegetal flavours and provide a wine with attractive ageing qualities. Its colour is lemon-gold, and the nose shows ripe passionfruit, hints of pears and wet river stones. The palate is bone dry, but it has a slightly oily texture with powerful flavours of passionfruit, pears and white peach with a zesty citrus finish. Refreshing. These wines are normally long-lived.
