New Zealand - Marlborough

The Charles Wiffen Sauvignon Blanc is produced from the Wiffen’s “Flipper” Block. The block is two caned pruned in the Vertical Shoot Positioning trellising. The block is carefully managed to achieve crop loads of 11 tonnes per hectare, achieving fruit with great concentration and texture.

This wine exhibits fresh and lifted aromas of gooseberries, ripe tropical fruits, lime and capsicums, revealing passion-fruit and mineral nuances in the glass. The palate is crisp and refreshing.
