Sauvignon Blanc * 25cl * Vegan & Organic * 12% ABV * Marlborough, New Zealand
The striking mermaid on the front of this 'tinny' is a nod to the maritime heritage of Marlborough - which isn't something people think of first when they hear of New Zealand's most famous wine-making region.
This is a classically aromatic Marlborough SB - with the can design not the only thing that hints at the area's seaside location, as there's a gentle maritime tang of minerality in the wine, too. It’s full of texture and breadth with zesty citrus and white stone fruits. Luscious gooseberry aromas follow through into the palate where it explodes with a full on citrus zing that is balanced by fantastic texture and weight. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing. With more texture than aromatics alone, this is a food-friendly Sauvignon Blanc. Its bright and crisp flavours are a perfect match with all sea beasties from delicate freshly caught seafood to rich and meaty barbecued king prawns.
Get a few in for those summer picnics and BBQs!
