Both fresh and refreshing, this Wither Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is best consumed upon release, however will continue to develop mouthfilling fruit-driven flavours over the next two to three years.
The fresh vibrant nature of this Sauvignon Blanc makes it a wonderful accompaniment to delectable seafood dishes such as poached scallops in a lime-scented broth or pasta al dente topped with bacon, sundried tomatoes, parmesan and freshly torn basil..
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.
