Description

Phil & Chris Rose planted their first vines in the Wairau River region of Marlborough four decades ago in 1978. Talk about growing and knowing your terroir, no one knows more about this Marlborough sub region than the Roses. Now the quintessential family business... these days son Hamish grows it; another son Sam makes it and daughter Caroline runs their outstanding front of house cellar door and restaurant. When you know your land like the back of your hand... and your first vines were planted 40-years ago, with most of your 100% family owned estate vineyards north of 20-years old... it leads to the making of outstanding Sauvignon Blanc like this 2017 Estate

Smells

Intensely fragrant and zesty aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits with subtle sweet herbs.

Tastes

Generous flavours of black currant, lime, white peach and citrus abound... with a subtle mineral thread adding zest to the bright, crisp, deep finish. Flavour concentration, purity and balance permeate this delicious Sauvignon. Enjoy through 2020.
