Our Wines

Even the most celebrated winemakers will confess that a great wine is created long before their influence. The Farmers Market wines reflect the quality developed within the vineyard by dedicated growers across New Zealand.

Tasting Note:

This is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, displaying a palest straw in the glass it delivers lifted, sweet passionfruit along with African sweetgrass, underscored with typical herbaceous characters. The palate has a burst of ripe fruit, passionfruit and white currant backed with subtle herbaceousness and intriguing white pepper notes. Firm acidity is balanced with the fruit weight for a persistence of flavour.
