Kōpū Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2021
Everything you would expect in a great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and more.
The 2021 growing season provided us with ideal conditions for growing high quality Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Cooler nights during the late part of the season retained the regions trademark aromatics and acidity.
In the winery, the fruit was gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures to capture the expressive fruit flavours from the vineyards.
Enjoy lively aromas of grapefruit, orange, passionfruit and sweet herbs. Ripe apricot, mandarin and currant flavours round out the palate.
Best enjoyed with contemporary seafood and chicken cuisine, or with Asian inspired flavours.
"It’s beautifully aromatic on the nose showing green apple, kiwifruit and lemon/lime zest aromas, followed by a lively palate delivering excellent fruit power and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and delightfully drinkable."
2019 Vintage - "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." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
