Vibrant and mouthwatering, with generous flavors of Key lime pie, fleshy green papaya and savory roasted herb. Focused and intense on the long, refreshing finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made.

The 2016 Valleys Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc has the classic Awatere herbal-led nose with delicate underlying notes of lemongrass, lime leaves and yuzu. The light-bodied palate is dry and refreshing with great intensity and an earthy/mineral finish.
