ABOUT THE WINE
The Totara winery, based in Marlborough, is named after a New Zealand native tree revered by Maori and European settlers for its strength and durability. Their vineyards stretch from the stony alluvial soils of Marlborough's Wairau plains and Awatere valley to the climatic extremes of Central Otago's Gibbston Valley and Cromwell Basin. This diversity enables Alan Peters-Oswald, who joined the Totara Wines team as a winemaker in 2010, to capture the best characteristics of these spectacular regions and produce wines that are true reflections of their terroir.

TASTING NOTES
Clean, fruity aromas typical of New Zealand Sauvignon: lime, green apple, gooseberry, pink grapefruit, mango and passionfruit. This complexity carries through to a bright, well-defined palate, aromatic and refreshing: medium body, juicy acidity and a flavoursome finish with a hint of zesty herbaceous notes.

FOOD PAIRING
This wine would be perfect as an aperitif, with salads, fresh goats' cheese, feta, Asian-style seafood dishes, Thai green curry, and lightly smoked salmon or fish and chips.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A delightfully zesty wine, with a little extra weight from time on the lees.
