Gold Medal Winner - Winpac 2005.

Marlborough's 2004 vintage finished long, cool and dry, the ideal ripening environment for Highfield's Sauvignon Blanc.

Carefully managed crop levels and a favourable season produced grapes with characteristic varietal expression. Tropical fruit aromas combine with grapefruit, lime and mineral notes on the palate, offering a wine with great concentration, intensity and typicity. Made only from top classified free-run juice and with minimal handling, this wine has a fine zesty character and a persistently refreshing palate.

Colour: Clear to pale straw Aroma: Intensely tropical with ripe citrus nuances Palate: Crisp invigorating flavours with a smooth texture & dry finish

Fermentation, predominantly stainless steel, maturation of four months post ferment lees maturation in tank with 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Food Suggestions - Suited to a variety of flavoursome dishes. Fresh shucked oysters are a natural as is a wide range of seafood cuisine. A spicy tomato salsa and brings out succulent tropical flavours from this multi-faceted wine. Serve lightly chilled
