Falconhead Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


Vintage 2018

An Aromatic and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc from the renowned Awatere Valley. This wine displays perfumed notes of ripe tropical and citrus fruits accented by aromatic herb aromas. A mouth-watering zesty lime palate is complimented with sweet passionfruit and guava flavours, ending with a dry mineral finish.

A warm 2018 grape growing season in Marlborough enabled us to harness a real depth of flavour and freshness in this wine. With a long, cool ferment using specialised yeast strains in stainless steel tanks, the wine was able to express itself into a delicious example of Aromatic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Vintage 2017

“Lime zest and a suggestion of ginger spice leap from the glass. The flavour is concentrated with lemon sherbet and blackcurrant, clean crisp acidity and amazing purity of flavour. A classic combination with Marlborough-grown mussels steamed with lemongrass and lime peel and eaten straight out of the shell.” Gold Medal, 95 points.

New World Wine Awards 2017

“Orange zest, honeyed citrus, passionfruit and aromatic herbs fill the bouquet and there’s a lovely taut undercurrent to the juicy lemonade, lime and tropical fruit flavours.” Gold Medal.

New Zealand International Wine Show 2017

Vintage 2013
