Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Wairau Valley, Marlborough, 2008

Wither Hills fine wines are created from vines that flourish in the central Wairau Valley. These vineyards are bordered to the south by the landmark range of the Wither Hills. Distinctively Marlborough, this 2008 Sauvignon Blanc captures the herbaceous, lime characters of the region. Pale lemon in colour, the wine displays a vibrant, fresh herbal aroma with ripe gooseberry overtones, which follows through to a lingering palate. Superb weight and richness combine to complete a wine of remarkable fruit intensity and style. 13.0% alc by vol.
