17 Sauvignon Blanc

Classically Marlborough, this wine immediately shows a mixture of herbaceous capsicum, passion fruit and ripe tropical fruit aromas. It has a very refreshing multi layered palate. These flavours and aromas leave a fresh lingering finish on the palate making it a full satisfying wine with balanced acidity.

5 STARS - Peter Saunders, Independent Author & Journalist, Oct 2017
“Quite a bracing style this vintage, crisp, fresh and yet mouth-filling. I think this is one of the best in the Hunter’s Sauvignon line-up over the past few years. Loads of fruit, true to variety and region, a stylish, very enjoyable style to enjoy over the next 2-3 years at least.”
4 STARS - Raymond Chan, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Oct 2017
“Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with moderate depth of pungent passionfruit and subtle gooseberry fruit aromas, unfolding fragrant white florals and fresh herb notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and lively, thirst-quenching flavours of pungent passionfruit and gooseberries with notes of fresh herbs and florals. The mouthfeel is zesty with brisk acidity, and the palate has soft phenolic textures that carry the fruit flavours to a lingering, soft finish. This is a gently voluminous Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit and fragrant gooseberry flavours, lifted by floral and herb notes on a brisk palate with soft textures. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years.”
