Enjoy as an aperitif, or with freshly shucked oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and clams. Also matches brilliantly with a goats cheese salad.
Shows pure fruit flavours of guava, blackcurrant leaf, fresh herbs, layered with bright citrus notes.
The palate is textured and elegant, with the distinctive mineral finish that our Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for.
The 2016 growing season started out incredibly dry, with some predicting a severe drought. Fortunately some unseasonal rains in February set the vines up for a great final ripening period. March and April were very consistent, with warm and dry weather experienced throughout Marlborough allowing a harvest that wasn't dictated by the weather. All varieties were able to be picked at optimal ripeness and in good time. Conditions over the flowering period were stable creating nice even crop levels in the vineyards which translated into wines with great concentration and texture. The Sauvignon Blanc from this vintage is showing the wonderful typicity that our Seaview Vineyard is known for - highly aromatic fruit flavours of blackcurrant leaf and citrus blossom with a vibrant palate that is pure with an elegant mineral finish.
