Waipara Hills Equinox Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2013

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Hand picked solely from The Mound Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. This is a complex oaked Sauvignon Blanc displaying fresh peach and nectarine; a touch of grapefruit and slightly flinty, smokey aromas. A wonderfully textured wine with rich sweet fruit flavours on the front palate and a clean, focused finish. Serve chilled with crayfish or pan fried snapper.
