Awarded 96 points, a Gold medal and Champion Sauvignon Blanc in the New World Wine Awards. One of the early success stories of grape growing in Marlborough is the Rose family. Planting their vineyards on the banks of the Wairau River in 1978 heroing Sauvignon Blanc, it’s no surprise that 40 years later this wine has been awarded Champion Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of green melon and kiwifruit are also in the flavour, along with a suggestion of grapefruit. Like all good Sauvignon Blanc, the acid is electrifying.
