Kauri Bay Sauvignon Blanc

Estate fruit for this wine comes from the “Maven” vineyard, a single-vineyard near the stony banks of Marlborough’s Wairau River. Carefully controlled leaf picking by block has impacted on the fruit’s flavor and composition of this wine and has lead to ripe, deep tropical flavors. On the nose wonderfully fragrant aromas of passion fruit and citrus abound. The palate is succulent and fruity showing all the attributes of great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. There is a fine acidity that can be felt in the wine giving it excellent balance and a clean crisp snap to the finish. ■ Grape Variety 100% Sauvignon Blanc
