Sauvignon Blanc, Avery Vineyard

Avery Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Located in the famous stony soils of Wairau Valley’s old Omaka River bed, our Avery Vineyard is classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

First made in 2001, the Avery Sauvignon Blanc allows flavours of lime, passionfruit and white peaches to show alongside the dry, mineral sensation on the palate that is unique to these soils.

  • Very pale straw with green hues. Intense aromatics of black currant, lime and nectarine. The palate is long and very complete with ripe citrus fruits tempered by fresh acidity and a stony finish.

    "Fresh, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with mineral, grapefruit, gooseberry and green capsicum flavours. A taut and edgy wine with a silken texture. Seamless and with a lingering finish."
