From award-winning pedigree comes Hunter's 40th vintage of their classically styled Sauv Blanc! It's already won Gold so no doubt will live up to the quality of its predecessors.
This wine immediately shows a mixture of passionfruit, crisp apple and citrus fruit aromas. The refreshing multilayered palate exhibits a blend of ripe tropical fruit, sweet herbs and citrus flavours. These flavours leave a lingering finish on the palate making it an all-round satisfying wine.

94 Points, Cameron Douglas MS, World of Wine, September 2021 "Fresh, fruity, herbaceous, pungent, tropical and an abundance of energy and power. Classic with purity and charm. Fantastic on the palate with acidity that’s salty and salivates, a core of fruit with citrus, white stone fruits and tropical fruit flavours and acidity that pushes the texture and core flavours through the palate seamlessly. Well-made and ready to drink from day of purchase through 2025."
4.5 Stars, Winestate Magazine, September 2021 "Sharply priced, this full-bodied, sweet-fruited wine was grown in the Wairau Valley and a small portion of the blend was fermented in large French oak barrels. Ripely, scented, it is weighty, with strong, tropical fruit flavours, a distinct touch of complexity, balanced acidity and good length."

The 2020 growing season was one to remember for the amazing weather conditions in Marlborough. During Summer and Autum we had warm and dry conditions throughout, allowing for clean fruit and an early start to the vintage. These conditions resulted in grapes that was picked with good natural acidity relative to their sugar and flavour ripeness. 2020 will prove to be an exceptional vintage.
