About

94 Point

"The wine is elegantly expressed, displaying delicate fruit aromas of mandarin, lemon peel & white stone fruit with nuances of floral and flint. The palate delivers excellent mid palate weight and focus, beautifully enhanced by juicy mouthfeel and fine texture, finishing long and mouthwatering. Scintillating clarity and elegance. A gorgeous blend."

Pale lemon straw. Fantastically pure aromatic expression of rose petal, spiced pear, fresh ginger and jasmine. A soft palate feel with a concentration of yellow fruits and a long, elegant
and spicy finish.

Pale straw with a vibrant green hue. Beguiling aromatics of rose water, peach, citrus blossom and wet stones, salivating. On the palate crisp fresh citrus and stone fruit flavours are carried long by a lovely bead of fine acidity finishing soft and luscious.

The Te Muna Road Vineyard is located some 7 kilometres outside of the Martinborough township. The vineyard consists of two distinct terraces, the higher comprising very old, stony clay infused soils perfect for Pinot Noir and the lower terrace of younger stony soils interleaved with limestone – providing an excellent environment for Sauvignon Blanc.
