This pale gold Triplebank Sauvignon Blanc meets the nose with a bouquet of punchy aromatics, from freshly cut capsicum, tomato leaf, citrus, and hints of jalapeño transfer onto a powerful palate. The satisfying palate has notes of herbs and nettle underpinned with grapefruit all bound with in a striking minerality. This wine is complex and layered, inviting you to linger and discover.
A powerful wine which is ready to be drunk now; or cellar for up to one -two years to develop complexity.
This punchy wine will resonate with equally tangy foods such as salads featuring asparagus, fennel or fresh tomato dressed with a vinaigrette. Add goats’ cheese or avocado for extra richness. Seafood of all kinds will be a great match, especially freshly steamed muscles in a garlic and white wine sauce topped with a wedge of lemon and fresh parsley served alongside warm baguette.
Now, this land produces pungent grapes that reflect the raw nature of Marlborough’s wildest valley with the vivid flavours captured in every bottle of Triplebank wine. Our winemaking philosophy is to capture and accentuate the essence of what has proved to be a distinctive winegrowing area. Small parcels of fruit from the same vineyards targeted each year, consistently producing wines delivering flavours in the herbal spectrum that show purity year on year.
