Tasting Notes

"Focused aromas of guava, lime rind and papaya with light leesy nuances follow on to a powerful and concentrated flavour, with a tight mineral texture and flavours of melon, green peach and limoncello."
Armit Wines. 

Food pairings: soft white cheese, chicken and tarragon pie, and smoked eel. A natural partner for seafood —particularly oysters.

Reviews & Scores

"The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Taihoa is a rich, smoky Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the cool, windy Kekerengu coast of Marlborough.

There are cool-climate green notes as well as black currant, citrus, flint and underlying lees-derived characters. The lively, clean finish is lengthy and intriguing."
92 points, Vinous. Rebecca Gibb MW.
