Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Current Vintage: 2016 
Bottle Size: 750ml
Case Size: 12

Tasting Notes:

The word azure is a near synonym for the colour blue. We have related this colour to the sparingly used
irrigation waters used to meticulously nurture our vines that produce the fruit that ends up under the Azure label.

Passionfruit, lime and kiwi fruit with an underlying hint of freshly cut grass and stony minerals. Vibrant acidity whisks the zesty palate into a tight refreshing finish with lemons and tropical flavours.

Wine Region:

Located in New Zealand in the north east of the South Island. It's best known for its dry climate and Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir wines. Worldwide interest in Marlborough wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, has continued to fuel the region wine boom. The region currently has 23,600 hectares of land planted with planted grapes. These plantings are primarily located within the Wairau Valley. Over the last decade, viticulture has also spread southeast into the smaller slightly cooler Awatere Valley.

Food Pairing:

Fish, oysters, crustaceans, Thai, vegetarian pizza, quiche, proscuitto, capsicum & asparagus dishes, smoked fish, white meats, herbed chicken & veal.
