JACKSON ESTATE - Green Lip Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Named after the Native Green Lip mussel, this is an effortlessly simple Sauvignon Blanc, with pronounced aromas of passion fruit and nettles. A mineral undercurrent leads to a mouthful of sweet and sour stone and yellow fruits. All wrapped together with a backbone of ripe acidity.
Jackson Estate embodies the very best of Marlborough, New Zealand, and is a testament to the vision and determination of the Stichbury and Jackson Families who have farmed the land on the Wairau River plain at Jacksons road for more than 160 years.
Since planting our pioneering vineyards three decades ago, time, tide and fortune have smiled on Jackson estate and the unparalleled affinity between Marlborough and New Zealand has been spectacularly realized.
