SKU: 25f8aa4cd168 Categories: , ,

Country: Marlborough, New Zealand

Size: 750ML

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

The 43 Degree vineyard is planted with vineyard rows running in an unusual angle of 43 degrees North East to South West. This results in more shade to the southerly aspect of each row thereby producing a slightly more herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc than other sites in Marlborough. Pale straw in colour. Crushed herb, blackcurrant bud, and passionfruit and gooseberry aromas. This Sauvignon Blanc is distinctively Marlborough with a fresh vibrant palate of passionfruit, gooseberry and crushed herb. Wonderfully full and rich with striking minerality leading to a long, lasting finish.
