One of the wine world’s most exciting developments in the past 20 years has been the meteoric rise of the New Zealand wine industry. The country, in particular the Southern Island’s Marlborough region, has built its strong reputation with its sublime Sauvignon Blanc. With its long cool growing conditions and a strong commitment to organic sustainable farming, the best efforts draw comparison to the refined, mineral-driven Sancerre of France’s Loire Valley. Our 2014 Tuhi Sauvignon Blanc is a fine representation of the Marlborough and what the region is capable of.
Piercing white gold in color, the nose is ripe with tropical nuances of lemongrass and mango, together with a subtle touch of gravelly earth sprinkled with morning dew. The body pulses with crisp citric flavors – bright lemon and lime lead to a richer hint of peach oil that brings beautiful texture and weight. The crisp, vibrant character of the wine reappears in the finish with fine acidity and mellowed nuances of citrus zest and fresh herbs.
