About the wine:

Vivacious - a wine which expresses the full spectrum of Marlborough. From the sunbaked, ancient riverbeds of the Wairau to the cool, dry terraces of the Awatere Valley - tropical punch meets herbal intensity and varietal purity. A passionfruit, pineapple and grapefruit medley dressed in dried sage, blackcurrant bud and gooseberry. The big, mouth-filling palate is restrained by chalky acidity which gives length and structure while subtle minerality and capsicum notes bring both complexity and Sauvignon typicity. Overt and intense, this wine reflects the dramatic and diverse landscapes of Marlborough. In this case, aroma and flavour speak a thousand words.
