Description

One sip of this delicate, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc and you’ll be immediately transported to New Zealand. It has notes of grapefruit and nectarine with the perfect amount of acidity

Winemaker: McBride Sisters
Size: 750 ml
Alcohol: 13.0%

Winemaker's Notes

Generous tropical fruits pair with lemongrass and citrus aromas. Ripe peach and mango aromas play with greener fruits like feijoa and Fuji apple. In the mouth, key lime flavors hang on a medium full, slightly oily body, which contrasts beautifully with the firm acidity and slightly mineral tone on the finish

John's Notes

The 2019 vintage sold so fast, that I had to grab some of the 2020 as soon as it became available. The nose and palate scream New Zealand from the moment you open the bottle.  Perfect for a spring weekend when you want that light, crisp, refreshing glass of white
