Tasting notes
Color: Light pale straw. Aroma: Amazingly powerful aromas, distinctively Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Lemon meringue pie, sweet passion fruit, melon, and tropical fruits with hints of crushed tomato leaf. Palate: Intense complex flavors of citrus balanced with ripe tropical fruits of passion fruit and white peach. Crisp acidity and a lingering finish round out this stunning wine. Cellar: Drink now and up to three years.

Wine maker notes
Always delivering outstanding wines, the Growing Horizon Vineyardólocated in the Central Wairau sub-region of Marlboroughówas selected as the first single-vineyard vintage Spitfire since 2005. The vineyard is planted on alluvial loam soil allowing the vines to produce a big lush canopy, which actively grows during the season. These very rich soils result in super-healthy vines, which produce grapes with maximum flavor. The vines are relatively young and produce wines with great intensity. A complex wine with ripe tropical fruit flavors balanced by herbaceousness, goosberry and crisp acidity. A superb reflection of Marlborough.

Food pairing
A wine to suit full-flavored seafood dishes such as pan-seared scallops or crayfish.
