2013 Supper Club Sauvignon Blanc
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc is a true expression Marlborough, characterised by intense tropical and passionfruit aromatics in combination with more delicate citrus and floral notes. These characters translate generously onto the palate, which is bursting with tropical fruit, ripe citrus and fine mineral acidity. The excellent growing conditions resulted in a wine of both great intensity and balance, a true hallmark of this remarkable vintage. This wine is a perfect match for any fresh seafood, but pairs particularly well with freshly shucked oysters or yellowtail kingfish sashimi. Its aromatic intensity also lends to pairings with many aromatic Asian dishes, or quite simply enjoyed by itself as an aperitif..

Marlborough Vintage Report 2013
A classic Marlborough summer, with very dry settled weather resulted in fruit of excellent quality. Harvest was condensed into a three week picking window, starting late March through until the second week of April. Grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and with no disease pressure translated into exciting wines of great concentration and finesse. The white wines are characterised by intense aromatics and bright vibrant acidity, while the red wines display rich complex fruit concentration and refined texture.
