Gold Medal - Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2017
A benchmark for Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. Always hugely popular, it is a 'go-to' wine for many and its success is based on Jules' passion for the variety having crafted some of the most successful Sauvignon Blancs over many years. 2017 is no exception.
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the Taylor Pass, Lower Wairau, Hawkesbury and Awatere Valley sub-regions of Marlborough. Each block was individually tended to, ensuring the grapes would reach ripeness with optimum flavour.

Vivacious tropical aromas of passionfruit burst from the glass, mixed with zingy accents of kaffir lime and subtle herbaceous notes of tomato stalk. With mouth-watering intensity, the palate embraces concentrated flavours of passionfruit and citrus and carries subtle hints of blackcurrant leaf. These flavours linger giving a long, well-rounded finish to the wine."
ANZWA 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Crisp and vibrant with ripe stone fruit, green rockmelon and sweet basil notes, backed by a lively, zingy finish."
5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, January 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, herbaceous and with honkingly good length of flavour, it’ll come as no surprise upon your first sip why this wine walked away with a gold medal at the 2017 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. Classic passionfruit, lemonade and lime curd characters’ jostle with jalapeno, blackcurrant leaf and peapod notes to create a glass of niceness indeed."
4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with soft and harmoniously presented aromas of passionfruit with notes of gooseberries, cut grass and white florals, along with nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has tightly bound and concentrated flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries, nettles and mouthwatering minerals. The palate has some phenolic texture and grip with fine, zesty acidity in the background. The wine flows with good linearity to an elegant, dry finish of passionfruit, gooseberries and herbs. This is a taut, well-concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with fresh passionfruit, gooseberry and cut grass flavours on a textured, zesty, dry palate. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from Taylors Pass, Awatere Valley, Lower Wairau and Hawkesbury, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.15% alc. and 3.2 g/L RS, the wine aged a short time on lees."
