A single estate-grown wine, from New Zealand's world-renowned Marlborough region, that expresses the iconic nature of this cool climate varietal with distinctive fruit flavors. Nose: Lifted vibrant fruits with a juicy centre. Tropical and pawpaw notes with a grassy edge. Palate: Well-weighted, tropical palate. Citrus flavors showing Finish: Good length and balance with lingering orange peel
The flavors of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - and this is why it is so popular - are powerful and aromatic: citrus, gooseberry and passionfruit in spades. So you need big flavors on your plate to stand up to it. Here are the top suggestions:
Asian-style seafood dishes - oysters, scallops, crab, clams, lobster, prawns - any shellfish with zingy flavors or a citrus or garlic marinade or dressing. (Big fat garlicky prawns - mmmm).
Thai food generally. A Thai green chicken curry or a Thai-style chicken salad is ace.
Grilled fish especially squid or swordfish.
Dishes with herbs and greens - salmon with dill, for instance, but great with recipes that contain basil, coriander, rocket and especially mint. Like lamb with salsa verde.
Salads with goats cheese and feta, asparagus, avocado or grilled red peppers, fresh tomato salads or salads with fennel, mango or papaya.
