Winemaker's notes:
This Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is made from small parcels of fruit selected from some of Marlborough's finest vineyard sites where the grapes enjoy ideal growing conditions of free-draining soils, warm days, cool nights and low rainfall. It was harvested at optimum ripeness and hand-crafted by our winemaker Alana McGettigan to produce exceptional wine.

Distinctively Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc displays gooseberry, passionfruit and honeysuckle characteristics. The palate is intensely concentrated, rich and lively with a fresh, crisp finish.

By the bowl or by the stem
From the Reading Room
Wine is served in stemware because the temperature at which wine is served can have a profound impact on the tastes and the enjoyment it yields. Wine glasses should always be held by the stem of the glass rather than the bowl since the heat of your hand will quickly warm the liquid.
