Lively, fruity and fun - like mangoes doing the tango

    • You'll slurp up this Reserve instantly – Rod's five vineyard Sauv Blanc blend is full of vibrant passionfruit and citrus flavors that keep you refreshed and thirsty for more. 
    • With Marlborough stealing most of the limelight for Sauv Blanc, Hawke's Bay's best vineyard parcels are available to winemakers like Rod for a smidgen of the price. That means you get overwhelming fruit quality for money. THAT's something to toast to.
    • This is a special Reserve bottling - there's not a lot to go around. Plus Rod says this wine is best to enjoy when it's nice and young... so hop to it!

Aging advice
Drink now or over the next two years.

Serving advice
Just crack it open and pour! Start well chilled and enjoy the changes in the wine while it warms and aerates in the glass.

Local food match
A goats cheese salad is a great combo with this! But no pine nuts in that salad - that ruins all wine!
