TerraVin 2013 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is drinking well. This was a a moderate yielding vintage with a good flowering that was backed up by a classic Marlborough summer.
Low bunch numbers ensured good concentration and plenty of warmth delivered beautifully ripe grapes with a good natural balance of acid, pH and alcohol.

Michael Cooper, New Zealand Wines 2015 ★★★★
The 2013 vintage was mostly handled in tanks, but 20 per cent of the blend was fermented in old French oak casks. Mouthfilling and dry, it is fresh and ripe, with strong melon, capsicum and spice flavours, showing a touch of complexity, and good texture and depth.
