On the nose - very intense, luscious tropical fruits with a rich, spiced stone-fruit character and just a nod to a slightly briny, passion-fruit edge. In the mouth, the attack is rich, lush and tropical but beautifully balanced by a taught, deliciously mouth-watering acidity full of super-ripe citrus. The mid palate is bright and light with a fine texture and body. The finish is full of sweet herbs and cut grass, along with an intense, fine, incredibly long smack of passion-fruit and kiwi fruit.

Largely sourced from Blind River in the Awatere, the 2019 Arona Sauvignon Blanc also contains a bit of Wairau fruit and 12% Riesling. It's got some of that crushed-tomato-stalk Awatere character but also bright nectarine and lime flavors, a fresh, light-bodied feel on the palate and a finish that lasts a bit longer than its similarly priced stablemates.
