On release the wine is pale lemon in colour. Its bouquet is a vibrant melange of citrus and tropical fragrances, with grapefruit, lime, guava and passionfruit at the fore. Peppered beneath this are hints of gooseberry, elderflower, green capsicum, and crushed thyme. The palate is well weighted with a pleasing richness, complimented by a juicy, zesty zing in the mouth. Finely tuned and balanced with crisp acidity, this is a classic NZ Sauvignon Blanc with elegance and panache that stands out from the crowd.

    Description

    Main Divide is the local name for the mighty range of Southern Alps which form the backbone of Te Wai Pounamu, the South Island of New Zealand. Run by the Donaldson family, Main Divide operates like a second wine for Pegasus Bay with some extra grapes sourced from local growers. Main Divide’s philosophy is based on individuality and harmony. They produce distinctive, vibrant wines with lively fruit flavours, which at the same time are integrated and harmonious.

    The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Main Divide is a focused, spritzy Sauvignon Blanc with punchy passionfruit and subtle snow pea characters. It's crisp, clean and pure and will you feeling refreshed and energized. Drink in youth for its zest for life. A well-priced Sauvignon Blanc.
