Fresh and attractively fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, mango, green rock melon and lime zest characters, leading to a flavoursome palate that is bright and juicy. The wine delivers youthful fruit intensity and lively mouthfeel, leading to a lengthy crisp finish. Beautifully fragrant on the nose showing citrus and passionfruit characters. The Snapper Rock Sauvignon Blanc is classically expressed and a immediately attractive golden pour.
A blend of Wairau fruit, with 68% of the grapes coming from Allan Scotts Omaka Block and 32% from a special block we like to call Block J. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel at Allan Scotts winery at cool temperatures to accentuate the pure fruit characters.
The 2018 vintage was picked on the 8th of April from our famous block ‘O’ in the Omaka subregion of the Wairau Valley. 100% single vineyard fruit from block O delivered slow consistent ripening and fruit forward characteristics, whilst still retaining a backbone of minerality. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to accentuate the pure fruit characters of the Wairau Valley. Three tropical storms, Fehi and Gita during February and Hola in early March, made this a challenging year for Marlborough, where our vineyard and wine making teams have had to work hard to deliver a high quality classic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc represents exceptional value for money and has built up a loyal following through it’s constant quality year after year. The style works equally well as an aperitif as matched with seafood or chicken dishes and looks great on the table at a dinner party
