Nose: Has a fine blend of tropical fuits, peach, lime and melon.
On the Palate : it has expressive flavours of fruity melon, citrus. It tastes refreshingly acidic, well balanced and has a long finish.
Pairing: Typically Sauvignon Blancs that aren't aged, have a more “fruity palate” and have a higher acidity have an ability to pair with foods that are fried and usually difficult to pair. Because of this characteristic, this would be an ideal Wine to pair with Fried Indian Vegetable based dishes.
However I paired it with some Greek Lamb Souvlaki (Skewered Lamb pieces with Pita) and it was excellent.
Marlborough, which is situated on the Northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, is famous for its Sauvignon Blanc. This region of New Zealand has Alluvial loam soil (Alluvial soil is a soil deposit developed on floodplain and delta deposits.), that is well drained and hence perfect for growing grapes. The Grape growing season of Malborough is fairly long, which helps the grape grow gradually and ripen. The Sauvignon Blancs from this region aren't the ‘Ageing type’ of Wines and should be consumed fairly quickly.
