Pale straw with green highlights. Focused aromas of jalapeño, nettle, lime zest, lemongrass and fresh herbs. A linear, pure wine with clean flavors of currants, gooseberry and citrus. Finishes savoury, crisp and dry. Very enjoyable when young and fresh; will age gracefully with careful cellaring. Pair with green-lipped mussels, goat's cheese, tabbouleh, fresh herbs and peppery leaves.

Tasted blind, you'd be able to guess this 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was from the Awatere Valley: this cooler, windier sub-region typically produces Marlborough Sauvignons that sit in the greener flavor spectrum, rather than the tropical side. This is exemplary with its gooseberry, elderflower and green capsicum-like flavors. There's more than just flavor, nice weight builds through the mid palate, and there's decent concentration. Bright, sassy and zesty, drink now to enjoy the vibrancy of youth.
