A Good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
The Marlborough region on New Zealand’s South Island is the custodian of one of the world’s most recognised wine brands – Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Highgate Sauvignon Blanc is a typical example of what the Marlborough region does well. Expert winemakers have made the most of the natural advantages of the climate and the vineyards, with their sandy soils over slate shingles, to produce a wine that is aromatic, herbaceous and has good acidity.
The Highgate 'Marlborough' Sauvignon Blanc is a great example of a good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It has a pale straw colour with yellow tinges. It has lovely tropical fruit characteristics, with aromas of citrus blossom and fresh peas with a hint of passionfruit. Refreshing and flavoursome on the palate with lifted citrus, driven acidity and an intriguing mineral note. Well balanced with great length and purity on the finish.
