2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Stoneburn Vineyards, Marlborough, New Zealand
Lemon and lime aromas that develop more tropical character on the dry, crisp palate. Stunning Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc!
Stoneburn is owned by Hunter’s Vineyard, but operated separately. The vineyard here is in an old riverbed whose stones retain warmth and give the fruit a high degree of ripeness. The Sauvignon benefits from this microclimate and delivers great expression of flavour at a very modest price.
Food recommendation - Spicy cous cous. Mild Indian and Thai dishes.
“A big hit of passion fruit here. Vibrant tropical-fruit aromas lead to a sweetly fruited palate that delivers a tangy, passion-fruit finish. Drink now. Screw cap.” James Suckling.
