This classic Sauvignon Blanc offers a tantalising combination of zesty citrus, tropical fruit, and a hint of minerality, making it a delightful choice for any occasion.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Aotea Sauvignon Blanc displays a pale straw colour with vibrant green hues, hinting at its freshness.
  • Nose: The nose bursts with aromas of ripe passionfruit, lime zest, and a hint of freshly cut grass. Subtle notes of gooseberry and white flowers add complexity.
  • Palate: Lively flavours of grapefruit and passionfruit lead the way, balanced by a crisp acidity. Hints of tropical fruit and subtle minerality add depth, leading to a clean, refreshing finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Aotea Sauvignon Blanc's bright acidity and herbaceous notes make it an ideal match for a range of dishes:

  • Seafood: The wine sings alongside oysters on the half-shell, grilled prawns, or a classic fish and chips.
  • Salads: Pair it with a summery salad featuring grilled chicken, fresh greens, and a citrus vinaigrette.
  • Asian Cuisine: Its zesty flavours complement the spice and vibrancy of Thai or Vietnamese dishes.
  • Soft Cheese: Enjoy a chilled glass with creamy goat cheese or a tangy feta for a delightful contrast.
