On New Zealand’s northeastern corner, forested hills descend into the intricate coastline of the Marlborough Sounds, an area decorated by inlets and sandy bays surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean. According to Māori mythology, the South Island is the canoe of Aoraki and the sounds are the remnants of his sunken prow. This is New Zealand. Named for the Māori legend of the first man, “tiki,” and the stunning beauty of the sounds, Tiki Sound wines are as vibrant and gorgeous as the Marlborough region.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough - 15.99
There is an array of classic Marlborough aromatics, such as lime zest, grapefruit, and lychee. On the palate, this wine presents refreshing, clean citrus notes of zesty lime and ripe grapefruit, lively acidity, and a hint of both lychee and minerality on the finish to create great balance and complexity. Also available on tap.
