FRESH, BRIGHT, VIBRANT FRUIT WITH A GRASSY HERBACEOUS FLAVOR!

"The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows intense lemon-lime and grapefruit aromas with touches of fresh grass and chalk. Crisp and light-bodied with good fruit vibrancy and balance, it has a medium to long finish. Drink it now through 2014. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
The sustainable winemakers at Omaka Springs Estates produce cool climate varietal grapes from 136 acres of vineyards located in the Omaka Valley. These grapes are used to make medal winning wines at the on-site Omaka Springs Estates Ltd winery, where the aim - and, indeed, the philosophy - is to make only high quality wines at affordable prices. Omaka Springs Estates is a family business owned solely by Geoff and Robina Jensen. In 1990, seeking a location similar to Northern Portugal, Provence or Tuscany, the Jensens established their first olive grove near Nelson. In 1992, Geoff and Robina moved the olive grove to a site alongside a newly purchased 40 acre vineyard in the picturesque Omaka Valley, right in the heart of the world-famous Marlborough grape growing area.
