This wine shows a good aromatic intensity with bright gooseberry, ripe greengage plums and ripe citrus. It is layered with flavours ranging from passionfruit, melon and pineapple to freshly squeezed lime juice. This uplifting Sauvignon shows an excellent length and depth on the palate. Huia Sauvignon Blanc is delicious with: fresh oysters, prawns, scallops, mussels cooked in Sauvignon Blanc, marinated fish with dill, goat, sheep and feta cheeses.
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
When the first growers planted grapes in Marlborough in the 1970s (there is evidence of plantings as early as 1870s), it is unlikely they would have foreseen the extent of the growth and fame that the region’s wine industry would achieve, based upon a single varietal called Sauvignon Blanc. The distinctive pungency and zest fruit flavours of the first Marlborough wines, in particular Sauvignon Blanc, captured the imagination of the country's winemakers as well as international wine commentators and consumers and sparked an unparalleled boom in vineyard development. Worldwide interest in Marlborough wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, has continued to fuel that regional wine boom.
