Sauvignon Blanc, historically known for the great white wines of Bordeaux and Sancerre, is gaining popularity in New Zealand. Lexicon Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in the renowned Marlborough region, on the northern end of the island. Marlborough is recognized for growing outstanding Sauvignon Blanc with mouthwatering fresh acidity, balanced by intense tropical fruit notes.

Tropical, zesty & citrusy. Hints of guava, passion fruit & gooseberries.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc brought up in tank) has a bright citrus and pineapple style in its aromatics and is juicy, medium-bodied, and refreshing on the palate. Readers looking for a house white to drink over the coming year or so will find this hard to beat."

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This wine is shy at first, whispering notes of lemon, grapefruit, tomato leaf and jalapeño. It is chalky in texture, with those grapefruit and green notes running through to a finish that shows a bit of bitterness. - CHRISTINA PICKARD"

wine enthusiast 88 pts"A nose of ripe, almost confected tropical fruits, apples and waxy lemon lead into a fleshy, chalky-textured palate full of apple skins and citrus. This is a food friendly wine to be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes."
