2016 High­gate Marl­bor­ough Sauvi­gnon Blanc

Halliday - - Sauvignon Blanc - Wine­maker Toby Cooper

Pale-straw yel­low. In­tensely aro­matic, with trop­i­cal fruit flavours of pas­sion­fruit and guava on the palate. Fin­ishes fresh, crisp and dry with ex­cel­lent length.

What is the in­flu­ence of place on this wine? The Awa­tere Val­ley is the dri­est, cold­est and windi­est sub-re­gion in Marl­bor­ough, NZ. This cooler cli­mate al­lows us to pro­duce bright sauvi­gnon blanc fruit bal­anced by crisp acid­ity.
