This is the most succulent, juicy, complex Sauvignon from Marlborough we've had in ages. It avoids being pungent but has wonderful aromas and flavours that make you remember why we all once fell in love with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. We have always done well with Greywacke but the volumes they’ve started to produce suggest it’ll be difficult for them to maintain the highest quality. So we started to look beyond to the next exciting producer – and there, like a guiding star over Bethlehem (which would make us wise men, so it must be right), we discovered Eveline Fraser’s Little Beauty. Eveline was the winemaker at Cloudy Bay back when it was good. Little Beauty is her own project, using a selection of the best fruit in some of Marlborough's prime vineyards located next to the excellent Dog Point. This is the most succulent, juicy, complex Sauvignon from Marlborough we've had in ages, and reminds you why we all once fell in love with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.


Tasting Notes

We still much admire what Greywacke are doing but as they grow their production (like Whispering Angel Rose who are now at 6 million bottles, something's got to give) it's time to look beyond to the next exciting producer. Little Beauty, whose vineyards are next to the excellent producer Dog Point, in some of Marlborough's prime sites, was ready to make wine just as Eveline left Cloudy Bay. Little Beauty is a selection of the best fruit from their vineyards.
