2012 Marlborough
Sauvignon Blanc
Ti Point

The 2012 Kirkland Signature Sauvignon Blanc from Ti Point Vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand, has bright grapefruit and lemon-lime citrus notes. Hints of mineral, ripe pear and green apple ;avors support the classic gooseberry character.

There is plenty of crisp acidity on the ;nish surrounded by a palate lush with sweet lemon and orange zest.

• Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc • Region: Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand • Alcohol Content: 13%

The Ti Point Vineyard consists of 60 hectares on the sunny southern side of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. This classic Marlborough vineyard of stones and overlying silts captures the sun’s heat during the crucial ripening period. It has been said that there is no wine anywhere in the world that tastes like the wine of Marlborough – the balance of extraordinary purity and intense ;avors set around impressive aroma, distinctive fruit characteristics and appealing balanced acidity is superb. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is predominantly cold-fermented in stainless steel to retain its famed “zing.”
