WS 88

Sauvignon Blanc is grown almost everywhere in New Zealand, but its in Marlborough that this variety finds its finest expression of anywhere in the world. Winemaking influences are kept to a minimum. Slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel retains the crisp fruit flavours. Cellaring is normally avoided to retain the youthful freshness of the wine. Tastes like cut grass, gooseberry, capsicum/bell pepper, with riper styles displaying melon, nectarine or passionfruit. Enjoy with tangy food avocado, oysters, trout, salmon, mussels, crayfish or salads.


"Tangy lime and grapefruit flavors are complemented by a clean, crisp acidity, accented with plenty of mineral and herb details. Drink now. " -Rated 88, Wine Spectator
