Vibrantly fresh Sauvignon Blanc from the Kiwi capital for this grape, Marlborough. Not only that, it's from the pioneering Rose family, who, in 1978, were one of the first to plant vines there. Brilliant gooseberry flavours and refreshing zip.
Mahau Sound is a deliciously fresh Sauvignon Blanc, as you’d expect from a family who pioneered grape growing in Marlborough 40 years ago. Phil and Chris planted the first vines in 1978, initially supplying grapes to Montana, then a few years later they built a winery and started bottling their own wine. Today, their son Sam is winemaker and nearly every other aspect is family run. This is very much a quality focussed estate, both in the vineyard and cellar. The wine is named after the scenic spit of land on the very northern tip of the South Island that serves as an idyllic retreat (post is delivered by boat and there’s no power unless you have a generator!) and is perfect for a spot of fishing. No surprise this wine is tops with seafood.
"Classic Marlborough Sauvignon – great new vintage of this guava and lime zipped white"
