The palate is textured and elegant, with the distinctive mineral finish that our Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for.

More information

Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall, which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

Diverse Growing Conditions

This wine is a blend of four different blocks on the property - two warmer, sheltered inland blocks and two cooler, coastal blocks.

This wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of Seaview's many vineyard blocks.

This Sauvignon Blanc shows the wonderful typicity that our Seaview Vineyard is known for - highly aromatic fruit flavours with a vibrant palate and pure, elegant mineral finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Cold settling

Four parcels from the Seaview Vineyard were selected for this wine and harvested individually over three days. The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed then pressed gently prior to cold settling for 72 hours.

Tasting Notes

Pure & Elegant

Enjoy as an aperitif, or with freshly shucked oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and clams. Also matches brilliantly with a goats cheese salad.

Food Pairings

Great with shellfish, goats cheese salad and of course Thai Green Curry!

This is an extremely food-friendly Sauvignon Blanc, and was awarded the Green Thai Curry Food Match Trophy at the Sommelier Wine Awards 2016.

Moderately concentrated sauvignon blanc with lime zest, guava, capsicum, ginger and nettle flavours. Good weight and a silken texture. Fruit sweetness is perfectly balanced by fruity acidity to give a pleasantly dry finish

93/100

Complex and engaging bouquet of SB with aromas of organic minerals, a seaside saline note and fruits of the orchard especially ripe citrus and apple with a noteworthy layer of herbaceousness. Also engaging on the palate with great texture flavour and length.
