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.”
