Te Pa Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015
"Grapefruit, gooseberry and passionfruit aromatics. The palate offers high acidity with classic vegetal and tropical fruit notes. Long, mango-flavoured finish." - Decanter Magazine
te Pā is 100% family owned and operated by the MacDonald family, who live at Blenheim's Wairau Bar, a land mass between the Wairau River and the sea, a small island cut from the mainland by the river and the flood canal. The MacDonalds can trace their family occupation here since the first Maori canoes landed in what is believed to be New Zealand's earliest-known settlement in the 1300s.
The current Chief Vintner, Liam McElhinney, is the genius behind some of the world's most iconic Sauvignon Blancs such as Saint Clair and The Ned. This 100% single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on the MacDonald family vineyard.

Bursting with intense aromas of grapefruit and lime zest with lively passion fruit and elderflower floral notes adding allure and complexity. This wine delivers an elegant array of delicious flavours and a crisp refreshing finish that is synonymous with Marlborough.
"Offering vibrant chopped herbs, pea pods and lemon juice notes with plenty of green apples and fresh grass scents to boot, the light to medium-bodied 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is youthfully fresh and lively with good length. It's perfect for everyday quaffing."
