'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.
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.
95% Sauvignon blanc
Harvested the week of the 5th of September. Direct pressing, with a light extraction to maintain the pale colour.

A wine that perfectly compliments white fish cooked in a cream sauce or on the grill as well oysters.
