Rongopai Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015


Adam Hazeldine

Recommended Food:
It works well with a white meat dish. Great with oysters or a green salad.

Recommended Cellaring:
Best enjoyed while young.

Production Notes:
After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours.  The wine was then blended and bottled.

Tasting Notes:
Typically pungent with grapefruit, lantana and blackcurrant.  The entry is sweet-fruited and juice with tropical fruits and blackcurrant.  Balance is fresh and lingering.

The wine is immediately appealing on the nose displaying grapefruit, peach, feijoa and herbaceous characters, followed by a lively palate that is pristine and flavoursome. Classically expressed and very appealing.
