  • The Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2016

A bouquet of passionfruit, guava, lemongrass and lime zest. On the palate the wine delivers a vibrant acidity balanced by tropical fruit flavours and hints of crushed herbs. 


Winemaking

Combining fruit from both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys adds an extra dimension to our Sauvignon Blanc, with the Wairau fruit lifting the aromatics and the Awatere adding an attractive mineral note. Once the fruit is gently pressed, the juice is fermented with select yeast strains to enhance the vibrant flavours. Cool fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel allows us to retain those fruit flavours found in the vineyard.


In the Spotlight

Awarded 91/100 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit "It is instantly appealing on the nose displaying passionfruit, white nectarine, grapefruit and dill characters, followed by a juicy palate that is vibrant and lingering. The wine offers plenty of classic Marlborough flavours and finishes long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2018."
