Little Oasis, Geoff Van Asch
The Awatere Valley is slightly cooler than the rest of Marlborough so less overt tropical fruit, instead a more European note, tight, elegant and fresh.
A superb example of Awatere Sauvignon. The Awatere Valley is slightly cooler than the rest of Marlborough, so this crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is more European in style than is most commonly seen from the region. It is tight, elegant and fresh with aromas of white peach, gooseberry and citrus peel that intermingle with mineral and sherbet notes. This versatile wine pairs perfectly with seafood, Asian flavours and many dishes with herbs and greens – basil, coriander, rocket and especially mint.
