Does a very good job of showing a drinker just how sophisticated sauvignon blanc can be from Marlborough, even without the oak/lees work of fancier versions of the same. This is a high class producer creating sauvignon blanc on another level.
Check your wimpy-wine-drinker hat at the door. This is bracing, nervy stuff from a top New Zealand producer. Light and juicy, it comes across with zesty grapefruit, dried grass and fistful of herbs. Try it with a goat-cheese omelet or steamed asparagus topped with chopped eggs.
