Found on the Southern Bank of the Awatere River are three steeply stepped, sun-baked terraces which inspired the name for TripleBank.
Triplebank Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
The wine is light straw in colour with green highlights. Aromas of gooseberry, stone fruits and red capsicum coupled with the ‘tomato stalk’ signature of Awatere Sauvignon Blanc are present. The palate shows ripe gooseberry supported by peach and a tantalizing minerality. This wine displays a fantastic equilibrium of concentrated fruit flavours and zesty acidity.
Cellaring and Food Matching:
This wine can be matched with grilled oysters, barbecued prawns or salmon and poached white fish with fresh green salads containing parsley, pepper or lemon. Mediterranean and Turkish dishes with hummus, olives and feta will also match well.
Though made to drink while young and vivacious, this wine may be cellared for up to three years to develop further complexity.
