Characteristic of Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs, this wine permeates notes of tropical fruits -- pineapples, fresh grapefruit, kiwi, and passionfruit. It's mouth-watering acidity and refreshing fruity flavors makes it a good pair to sashimi.
New Zealand۪s alluvial plains, dry river beds and cool maritime climate produce these wines of character. Over the millienia rocks and stones have been transported from the mountains by glaciers and rivers before being deposited to form the valley floors. These pebbles capture the warm sun during the day and radiate heat at night to ripen the grapes producing a crisp balanced wine with wonderful passionfruit and gooseberry flavors.
