Marlborough, New Zealand

Long Boat Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Long Boat specializes in Sauvignon Blanc from high-elevation vineyards south of Wairau Valley in the exposed, windswept ridges of the remote Awatere and Waihopai Valleys. The winery’s focus is simple – to craft a wine from exceptional fruit grown with unrivalled care from proven deep-rooted older Sauvignon Blanc vines. Winemaker is Mike Paterson. This vintage received a rating of 89 points from Steve Tanzer!

Long Boat Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw in color, aromatic, concentrated and steely. The nose thrills with passion fruit, blackcurrant, lime and mint lifted with a touch of fresh grass in a pungent style that defines Marlborough. Outstanding intensity on the palate explodes with a refreshing sweet/sour framework, fleshed out mid-palate by riper yellow and tropical fruits, all cut with calcareous acidity finishing long and fine.

Enjoy Long Boat Sauvignon Blanc over the next 4-5 years with grilled flounder, asparagus, oysters and summer salads.
