Blind River Tekau Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Marlborough - 12 Bottles

Availability: In stock

Pretty Good

This Tekau was created from a specially selected parcel of Sauvignon Blanc picked in the cool of the early morning. Later, the fruit was gently pressed, settled and transferred into aged French oak barrels. In a glass, it reveals a pale straw colour. The nose is complex, offering aromas of intense lemon, tropical fruits along with subtle notes of red capsicum, passionfruit and smoky oak. The rich and round palate with lovely weight has enough acidity to retain an appealing freshness and provide overall balance. You may enjoy this beauty with Pan-fried seafood, lightly smoked fish, chicken and herb dishes, goats’ cheese, classic risottos, or rich pasta dishes.

The Blind River range by Lawson’s Dry Hills is very much handmade and of limited volume. The company’s philosophy is to capture the characteristics of the vineyard and guide them into the finished wine. This is done by nurturing the vineyard in a way that encourages the desirable qualities of flavour, acidity, ripeness and overall balance. The grapes are sourced from a vineyard in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley in the north-east of New Zealand’s South Island.
