'Margot' named after our eldest daughter, joined our range in 2007 when we set about producing a 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

 

With our New Zealand heritage it was natural that we sought to produce this fresh, crisp, fruit-filled summer wine.

Tasting Notes

A bright pale yellow robe with silver highlights. A very expressive and complex nose combining grapefruit, granny smith apples and passionfruit with surprising minerality. The attack is tangy and juicy dominated by citrus fruit. The final is long and refreshing.

This wine is perfect with a creamy  fillet of white fish, pan fried squid rings or Oléron oysters.
