Here’s an Echo most delicious...! The intense aromas of grapefruit, white peach, pea pods, asparagus and freshly cut grass that this wine displays echo beautifully in the flavours of the palate. Crisp and zesty, this is Marlborough Savvy at its best. Pair with mild green curries, or green salads topped with seared prawns and a squeeze of lime. (VINTAGES panel, June 2012)

Mineral driven with zesty lime and grapefruit. More on the fleshy side with only slight hints of grass. This sauvignon blanc is a good example of a more moderate, less pungent style. Good length.
