Wine Review: This pale yellow wine opens with a prominent gooseberry bouquet. On the palate, the wine is lively, slightly acidic, and a touch tart. The flavor profile of the wine is lime like. The finish is dry, tingly, and refreshing. It has some length as well. The wine is not for everyone, but is very nice. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light straw in colour with brilliant clarity. A distinctly herbaceous bouquet, overlaid with rich, tropical notes. Drylands Sauvignon Blanc displays the quintessential Marlborough characters of ripe, rich herbal and tropical fruit. Intensely varietal qualities of gooseberry and passionfruit combine in a vibrant burst of flavour. The palate has excellent weight and balance, lingering in a crisp, refreshing finish.

Organic status: not organic
