Vineyard Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard wine sourced from the MacDonald Family Home Vineyard. The vineyard contains rich Rarangi alluvial soil deposited by the Wairau River 300 years ago. The rich top soils of the lower Wairau Valley have long been considered the finest agricultural soils in Marlborough.

Winemaking Notes: The fruit was harvested in the cool of the morning, transferred to the winery where it underwent temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks using carefully selected yeast cultures. Post ferment maturation on fine lees gave the wine a refined texture to compliment the exuberant aromatics.

Tasting Notes: The te Pā Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with intense aromas of grapefruit and lime zest. Lively passion fruit and elderflower floral notes add allure and complexity. This wine delivers an elegant array of delicious flavors and a crisp refreshing finish that is synonymous with Marlborough.

    Vivid and tangy, with green apple, lime zest and lip-smacking lemon notes, set on a crisp body. Drink now.
