Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Sourced from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough, this lively Sauvignon Blanc displays aroms of melon, nettle and crisp snowpeas. The front palate bursts with fresh citrus, grapefruit and delicate melon notes; while the fruit weight and texture carry through to a balanced, mouth watering finish.
