Our Sauvignon Blanc delivers everything you’d hope for from this classic Marlborough varietal. Fresh and forward with a combination of tropical passionfruit aromas and flavours combined with zesty, vibrant tones.
Sauvignon Blanc with its herbaceous qualities pairs well with similar green herbs. If it has parsley, rosemary, basil, cilantro or mint, chances are Sauvignon Blanc will make a great match.
Its best match, of course, is great company and we're sure in your house that is always served. Enjoy!
