Kōpū Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2019
Everything you would expect in a great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and more.
The wine is light straw in colour with aromas of ripe passionfruit, peach and gooseberry. The grapes for this wine came from two sites in the Awatere Valley and were machine-harvested at optimum ripeness to produce a medium-bodied wine with luscious tropical fruit, white peach, and a crisp green apple and lime finish. Lingering hints of red pepper and dried herb flavours round out the palate.
Best enjoyed with contemporary seafood and chicken cuisine, or with Asian inspired flavours.
"This is intensely expressed on the nose showing passionfruit, green rockmelon, lime peel and crunchy apple characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit power and loads of tasty flavours backed by bright acidity, finishing long and refreshing."
