Tussock Jumper Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Tussock Jumper Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and light with a vibrant fruit character. The nose opens with melon and blackcurrant on a fresh lemon citrus background. The dry and medium-bodied palate has a crisp acidity and light texture. Generous melon, passionfruit and pineapple flavours with a lemony touch and just a hint of fresh herbs.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from vineyards in Marlborough, New Zealand. The vineyards have a free draining alluvial alleys composition. The alluvial deposits are typically the local sandstone called greywacker, which makes up most of the mountainous spine of New Zealand.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
This is a bright and bouncy Sauvignon that’s reminiscent of summer with aromas of lime popsicle, fresh melon, fresh cut grass and green bell pepper slices. A chalky texture and fruit weight in the mouth neatly balance the zingy acidity. Citrus and melon fruit linger on the finish.
