Barker's Marque Ranga Ranga 2016 (New Zealand: Marlborough)

Name Barker's Marque Ranga Ranga 2016
Varietal Sauvignon Blanc
Region New Zealand: Marlborough
Notes Maori for 'gentle breeze', Ranga Ranga is Simon and Vanessa Barker's early-picked Sauvignon, caught when just ripe. Their vineyard is near the Blind River in the Awatere Valley, a cool site close to the ocean, where Sauvignon grew deliciously crisp and zesty. Estate grown and “Old School”. The crisp acidity carries a solid core of lemon grass, lime zest, the tang of cut lawn plus a hint of dried herbs and a touch of Awatere minerality. And it packs a fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd.
