A wine first produced in 2005 that is exclusive to restaurants and bars. The Black Label Sauvignon Blanc has been developed to complement food. We have blended a wine from estate-owned vineyards which, while displaying the pungent and crisp characteristics that set Marlborough sourced fruit apart, shows greater depth and complexity on the palate.
The bouquet is an inviting mix of tropical, passionfruit aromas. Palate entry is luscious and lively, bursting with passionfruit. This is a fantastic example of Black Label Sauvignon that is equally enjoyable on its own and with food.
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
We were the first New Zealand company to win a Gold Medal for Pinot Noir back in the early 80's. Henderson and Marlborough vineyards contribute to this lighter style Pinot Noir which displays red cherry flavours with an earthy finish.
The nose has plentiful aromas of black current, raspberry, spicy dark plums and suggestions of mushroom. Attractive dried herb notes are also in attendance. Upfront the palate is red and dark fruits with lots of cherries and strawberries. A pleasantly textured wine with fine tannins and a medium weight. An easy drinking Pinot Noir with intensity and a very good spicy length.
