Awarua, Sauvignon Blanc

Description
Awarua, Sauvignon Blanc - Light yellow in colour with green reflections. In the nose, a pungent aroma of characteristic gooseberries, fresh herbs, grass and passion fruit. In the mouth, the wine is juicy and you taste the fresh green of celery, gooseberries, fresh grass, but also tropical fruit such as passion fruit and the fresh acidity of citrus fruit. The aftertaste is long, refreshing and crisp!

Description

Awarua's grapes grow in Spring Creek, this region is recognised as one of Marlborough's most premium wine regions. This region is also home to the Moutere Rugby Club. The grapes for this wine are grown by loyal members of the club. These grapes are then processed by the Allan Scott winery, which develops this Awarua wine. From every bottle sold, an amount is given directly back to the club. This creates a lot of togetherness in Spring Creek and also develops the sport of rugby in the region for young and old.

Allan Scott is a winemaker with 40 years experience in the wine trade. In 1975, Allan and his wife Cathy bought a piece of land. They joined the new era of independent winemakers in Marlborough. In 1990, they launched Allan Scott Wines. It is a true family business where Allan and Cathy's 3 children have grown up to become valuable members of the company.
