Our Sauvignon Blanc instantly brings forth the heady fruit flavors and distinctive varietal characters for which Marlborough is renowned. A striking intensity of herbal and kiwifruit aromas gradually give way to tropical fruit and citrus notes, contributing towards a long and flavorsome finish.
Andrea’s first love is Sauvignon Blanc aka “The Savage White”. Naturally Bold and vivacious, yet masterfully balanced and crisp Andrea has defined a classic yet refined style of wine made for …well… everybody!
Food Pairing: Fish, Chicken, Salads, Sushi.
Production NotesReasonably straightforward winemaking aimed at retaining the natural fruit quality from another excellent vintage. Cool stainless steel fermentation is followed by a period on yeast lees to enhance the wine's natural weight and texture.
Winemaker NotesThis is an elegant, refined, style of Marlborough Sauvigon Blanc. It shows some complexity and the ripe fruit characteristics of the Wairau Valley fruit it is made from.
A very intersting bouquet, quite complex with herbal note, some salinity (oyster shell), lemon and lime, and plenty of the tropical fruit with the typical Marlborough herbaceousness. The slightly salty, minerally note on the nose shows up our 17 Valley fruit in the wine very nicely.
The wine has a very direct entry onto the palate with very good mouth-feel. Good weight and length lead again to a nice show of complexity. Overall a very attractive, serious, wine. From several owned and contracted vineyards located in and to the sides of the Wairau Valley, Marlborough.
