"Aroma: Displays lifted gooseberry, passionfruit and blackcurrants, with hints of jalapeno, freshly cut herbs and lemongrass. Palate: A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of currant, citrus and gooseberry flavours that persist on the lengthy finish. Cellaring: We recommend drinking our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young and fresh, however the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared. Food Pairing:This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous green-lipped mussels. Also try it with lobster and white fish." -Winemaker Notes
