This wine epitomizes all the classic virtues of sauvignon blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region. The wine practically leaps out of the glass with its aromatic intensity combining lemon, mineral, green bean and hints of gooseberry and tropical fruits. On the palate, the wine is lively, intense and zingy. It is medium-bodied, with crisp acidity and flavours of peach, preserved lemon, melon and passion fruit. A touch of citrus pith bitterness lingers on the long finish. Pair with goat cheese, citrus and crab salad or arugula salad.
