Leveret Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage 2017

Arguably Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is New Zealand’s greatest success story. All of the fruit for this wine was sourced from our Kuranui vineyard in the upper Awatere Valley in Marlborough. Two tropical cyclones affected Marlborough in 2017; the first hit the Wairau and lower Awatere and left the upper Awatere relatively unscathed; the majority of our fruit was harvested before the second cyclone arrived.

This wine has vibrant aromas of citrus (lime, mandarin), nectarine, rock melon and lemon thyme with hints of tropical fruits. The palate is fine and elegant and the long finish is rich with mandarin and tropical fruit. Enjoy with Marlborough green lipped mussels or fresh Bluff oysters.
