Clouston & Co Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Crushed herbs and heady floral aromas interplay with ripe tropical fruit and saline minerality - New Zealand Sauvignon at its finest.
Showcasing the raw aromatic power of Sauvignon Blanc, this gem from Clouston & Co practically explodes onto the senses. It has billowing aromas of fresh herbs, summer flowers, honeydew melon, blackcurrant, kiwi and passionfruit. The zesty, tropical palate has a lovely texture and lively finish.
Great served with white fish, shellfish or asian fare.
