"With a pronounced sweaty, heady, vegetal/bell pepper nose that all works in harmony, the 2016 The Ned Sauvignon Blanc fills the palate with straightforward citrus, herb and veggie flavors, complimented by racy acid and finishing long." (WA)

"This medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc is slightly leafy in style, but balances that with lush citrus fruit. The crushed tomato stalk and grapefruit come together in a dry, harmonious finish that's mainstream delicious. Drink now." (WE)

Winery Notes:
COLOUR:
Pale straw with light green-gold highlights

AROMA:
Saturated aromas of passionfruit, lime zest and pink grapefruit dominate the subtle signature of Waihopai minerality – a lovely combination of citrus based bath salts and warm river stone.

PALATE:
This classic tropical tinged, citrus based aromatic theme drives a palate that is crisp and fruit focused whilst bright acid edges add length, structure and an overall sense of liveliness.

FOOD MATCHING:
Whilst classically matched with most seafood why not push the boundaries and try the Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2016 with a twice baked Chèvre soufflé, served with a rocket, apple and walnut salad.

CELLARING POTENTIAL:
Crafted to be enjoyed at the peak of its vibrancy and freshness, we recommend drinking this wine within 2 – 3 years of vintage date
