Kuki Marlborough Sauvignon

KUKI045
There are Marlborough Sauvignons, and then there is Kuki. The Kuki range of wines are made to our exacting specifications, and the result of many months of tasting and comparing. We wanted more fruit, more zest, more intensity and a lot more complexity, so we have blended different plots and terroirs of marlborough to give a higher quality wine - this is ripe, intense and deliciously elegant with layers of gooseberry, passionfruit and lime leaf, citrus layers add structure along with a pronounced minerality and floral finish. A delicious Marlborough Sauvignon from this top New Zealand wine producer.

Kuki

Kuki produces wines from the Marlborough region of New Zealand's South Island and demonstrates why wines from this area are so popular. Sunny, dry days and cool nights provide a long growing season which helps give the wines their vibrant flavours.

Tasting Notes

Lifted notes of fresh grapefruit and tropical fruits on the nose leading to a fresh palate with concentrated fruit flavours and a mouth-watering finish.

Food Matches

Spicy seafood Laksa with coriander

Vinification

Each vineyard batch was kept separate, gently pressed and cold settled. The juice was racked and inoculated with selected yeasts. A cool, closely-monitored fermentation followed, and once the wine reached perfect balance it was chilled and racked off its yeast lees. The wine was then allowed to relax in tank before blending, fining and filtering.
