The Marlborough Express

 PRESTIGE COLLECTION SAUVIGNON BLANC 2012

The lifted, tangy aroma delivers vibrant gooseberry, pineapple, capsicum and tomato leaf notes. Quite savoury, which enriches those tropical notes. There's oodles of class here; perfectly balanced, fleshy, rich and concentrated with a delightful creaminess. This wine has undergone a comprehensive winemaking regime including malolactic fermentation and lees stirring ensuring it has complexity and texture. The melon, stone fruit and ripe lemon flavours combine with citrusy crispness at the finish which is suitably dry. If you like the best a sauvignon blanc can offer in a sophisticated package, this is it.
