Mount Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc 2018
A brilliant, pale straw green colour. Typical Marlborough Sauvignon aromas of grapefruit, box wood, pea-pods, tobacco & tomato leaf with an intriguing gooseberry yoghurt like complexity. The palate is fresh and full of vigour. Flavors of passionfruit, melon & grapefruit are balanced by limey acidity and good fruit sweetness. The palate is well structured and tapers to a long, lingering finish. A classic Marlborough statement.

This is on the more herbal side of the Sauvignon Blanc spectrum, showing obvious notes of tomato leaf and boxwood, but there’s ample white grapefruit to back up those green elements. This medium-bodied wine finishes long and crisp.
Stainless steel tank fermented at controlled temperatures between 10 – 13 degrees C. Cellaring potential 2 to 3 years ideally. Enjoy while young. Ideal with seafood, especially Kaikoura crayfish & paua, or antipasti and Asian foods.
