Mission Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Hawkes Bay New Zealand
From fruit picked off the middle and upper terraces of Marlborough's Blind River vineyard, the higher the blocks, the deeper the slope, as poorer soils toward the summit yield thinner crops for a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc of amazing minerality. The flavours are consequently very intense, a revitalizing nose of grapefruits and herb, florals and passionfruit aromas. A palate of exceptional weight and wonderful textures before a long, lingering finish of mouthwatering juicy fruit and suave savouryness, all supported by refined mineral acidity.
Available by the dozen
