“Classically styled aromas of Sauvignon Blanc, a plush almost sensuous bouquet with scents of white flowers and white fleshed tree fruits. Layers of tropical fruit and soft sweet herbs add complexity and charm. On the palate - crisp, refreshing, fruity, salivating and dry. Flavours of citrus and tree fruits then tropical. Herbaceous, silky, persistent, fleshy and balanced. A lovely wine with charm and elegance as well as classic power and tension that only Marlborough Sauvignon can deliver. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2023+.”
2020 Sauvignon Blanc
“This is varietally pure and lively, yet with a sense of restraint. The elegantly lifted bouquet shows white fleshy nectarine, grapefruit, Granny Smith apple and subtle oatmeal characters. It’s concentrated and brilliantly focused on the palate, delivering linear mouthfeel and mouth-watering acidity, finishing impressively long and engaging.”
“Bright, fresh and fruity with aromas of peach and apple with tropical fruit scents then vanilla and lees woven through a moderate French oak layer. On the palate - dry with a satin texture, weighty and youthful with flavours of stone fruits and baking spices, grapefruit, apple, a moments of tropical fruit and fine wood tannins, with medium+ acidity textures. Balanced and well made with immediate drinkability from today and through 2024.”
“Eva Pemper is one of the most exciting young winemakers in Marlborough, and I’m all over how she’s stamping her native Croatian smile on a sauvignon style showing more dimensions than the Twilight Zone. The little Cupid holding a glass of wine on the label is a legacy from her family’s wine label and represents the love and verve for life that we all can embrace while having a nice glass of wine. Soft herbs, passionfruit, lemongrass, gentle acidity, and mesmerising textures make this fang with fish pie.”
