One of our best sellers! This is a full flavoured wine with strong citrus notes, passionfruit, red capsicum, gooseberry and wild herb flavours, all typical Sauvignon Blanc characteristics from the Marlborough area of New Zealand, it is crisp and fresh in the mouth with a good finish. Matthew Jukes described as it as: “the best value Kiwi Sauvignon I have tasted so far this year. With clean, bright, lemon and lime lines and a frisky, crisp finish, this is a modern, top flight wine at a very keen price point”. http://www.matthewjukes.com and Weekend Mail magazine.
Snapper Rock grapes are harvested from one of the southernmost vineyards in the Malborough region of New Zealand. An area that excels in showing the best characteristics of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. David Clouston the winemaker also lends his skills to the production of the Two Rivers range of wines from New Zealand. The winemaking is simple – they employ modern techniques with traditional craftsmanship. All the Snapper Rock vineyards are hand tended and the grapes are picked early morning ensuring wines keep that freshness and clarity of flavour – offering a vibrant reflection of Marlborough and the personality of each vintage. Snapper Rock wines are focused on delivering the fruit driven styles of wine that has made Marlborough famous, while the cool climate of the most southern valley of the Marlborough region adds something special not found anywhere else in Marlborough. Their aim is to ensure a long term strategy, which is both fair and sustainable, for present and future generations.
