The Real Review

Awarded 86 Points

"Light, fresh sauvignon blanc, with restrained varietal flavours including passionfruit, fresh herbs, lemongrass and green capsicum. A suggestion of sweetness is balanced by fresh acidity to give an off-dry finish."

"Ripe, fruity and varietal with a classic bouquet of passionfruit and mango, apple, lemon and fresh herbs. Crunchy refreshing textures on the palate with vibrant flavours of citrus and white peach, lemon and tropical fruits laced with fresh herbs and a touch of grass."

"Pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon and good example of the style that has become so popular. Has that engaging mix of herbs and spices on the nose with passionfruit on the palate. Has a crunchy, fresh acidity that promotes a very long finish."

Joelle Thomson

Wine Writer

"This is textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with its vivaciously fresh and fruity flavours, bold and powerful intensity, and lingering crisp finish. The ripe tropical aromas are suggestive of a warm, dry vintage, which is exactly what the weather gods delivered in 2020. And while it's light-bodied, its long finish adds to the flavour memory banks. Outstanding value for money."

"Pristine and fabulously fragrant, the wine shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, Granny Smith apple and lemon sorbet characters on the nose. The palate offers terrific fruit purity and intensity together with fine texture and bright acidity, making it instantly appealing."

Made With Care

We select fruit from vineyards throughout Marlborough's famed Wairau and Awatere Valleys. This gives us the ability to consistently blend our famous Giesen style Sauvignon Blanc year in, year out.

The Wairau Valley is known for producing fruit that adds brightness, tropical and citrus notes, and a lovely tighter acidity to our final product.

The Awatere Valley - slightly cooler, drier, and windier - gives us fruit which adds fullness, richness, and interesting flavours. Here we find the tropical notes are more grilled, and the herbal notes more dry.

Our winemakers aim to emphasise these vineyards and amplify our wonderful fruit. Following a gentle pressing, we started with carefully selected yeasts added to the juice to start fermentation. These yeasts were chosen to help build texture, weight and aromatics. Parcels of fruit were batch fermented with fermentation stopped when the perfect balance of natural sweetness and classic Marlborough acidity was achieved.

Full Flavour

This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is aromatically expressive and generously flavoured with freshly cut herbs, scrumptious tropical fruit, and subtle notes of blackcurrant leaf.
