Wild Rock Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Pale lemon straw with green hue. Fresh aromas of white peach, fresh green herbs, blackcurrant bush and wet river stones. A lovely rich fruit core of citrus and apple is balanced with fine acidity for a soft yet pleasantly dry finish.
When Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks took their first great voyage in 1769 they encountered the coastline of New Zealand, a wild rock formation as plainly seen from the sea. Banks soon discovered a bountiful land of birdlife and plants with rich soils admirably farmed for crops by the native Māori, blessed by the sun and rivulets of water. His collections and descriptions of plants formed the foundation for the modern study of New Zealand botany. Referencing Captain Cook’s initial impression of New Zealand the Wild Rock labels incorporate those flora and fauna drawings chronicled by Cook and Banks on this initial exploration.
