Te Merio is in a handy one large glass of wine can! Classically aromatic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a gentle maritime tang of minerality. It’s full of texture with zesty citrus and white stone fruits. Luscious gooseberry aromas follow through into the palate where it explodes with a full on citrus zing that is balanced by fantastic texture and weight. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing.

The wine is dominated by 50% Awatere Valley fruit, with vineyards located on both sides of the river in three sub-regions. Soils on the south bank are deep silt loams and fertile, while the north bank sites are stony, shallow silt loams, and lighter in structure. A dry and windy climate in this valley leads to small, thick-skinned berries with an emphasis on herbal intensity. Wairau Valley sites in the Rapaura district and the Southern Valleys make up much of the rest of the blend. These are warmer areas, and the soils vary between deep fertile loams, gravelly alluvium and clays. Fruit from these sites is often more tropical, with some ripe citrus characters. Vines are all managed with vertical shoot positioning, and pruned to leave balanced bud numbers and crop levels consistent with individual site capacity. The different locations and climates give greater texture, character and flavour to wine. Picking decisions are made entirely on flavour, skin-contact is minimised and cool fermentations with neutral yeast in stainless steel tanks preserve the crisp, fresh varietal nature of the fruit.

Food Pairing:
With more texture than aromatics alone, this is a food friendly Sauvignon Blanc. Its bright and crisp flavours are a perfect match with all sea food dishes from delicate fresh seafood to the rich and meaty King Prawns.
