Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith, and a moreish dry chalky finish. Another remarkable Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc.

A perfect match with plump oysters, green lip mussels, even prosciutto and rock melon.

Wine EnthusiastThis simple summer sipper won't rock any worlds, but it pleases with candied pineapple, ginger, a hint of lime leaf and grass on the palate. Zippy acidity makes for easy weeknight glugging.
