Description

Vavasour were one of the pioneers of Marlborough and the key pioneer of the Awatere region. The first plantings were in 1986... making some of the vines which contributed to this 'Best 50 Wines of the World' result, 31-years old. Add into the mix the artistry of Chief Winemaker Stu Marfell and the overall stewardship of NZ viticulture/winemaking genius Alastair Maling (also a Master of Wine) and you've got the ingredients to produce a wine of such rarified quality required to be selected in the "Best 50 Wines of Show" at Decanter, from 16,903 wines originally submitted.

Smells

Intense blackcurrant, nettle, passionfruit, orange zest and guava aromas.

Tastes

Deliciously crisp and long on the palate... the mid-palate explodes with a tropical fruit salad including guava and passionfruit. Seductive texture and lithe acidity underpin its exceptional length and delicious drinkability, it's another classic Vavasour Sauvignon of World Top 50 quality... don't let the opportunity pass you buy - enjoy through 2022.
