We’re thrilled to be able to offer you the opportunity to purchase Fairbourne Estate’s Edgehill Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 online, exclusively through our website.
Edgehill is a site inspired dry white wine made in Marlborough with Sauvignon Blanc. The style is fresh, vibrant and very enjoyable early in its life. However, Edgehill is carefully balanced and will reward the patient with a year or two of bottle age, which means that the 2012 vintage is just about perfect to drink now!
As with all our wines, we believe Edgehill makes great food taste even better…… it has the fullness to pair well with a range of spicy and fragrant cuisine. Fresh shell-fish and citrus dressings are a natural fit. Also, try with salsa or warm chorizo and asparagus sprinkled with feta.
Edgehill has received four and five star reviews….. this is what acclaimed wine critics are saying….
This is a delightful and complex sauvignon blanc. It has big tropical fruit aromas and flavours with an element of tinned asparagus. It also has a nudge of oak aged sauvignon in the blend and the outcome is a textural and layered wine – TIZ Wine Reviews, October 2013
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a very fine and elegant nose, quite tightly bound, with delicate aromas of gooseberries, herbs and nettles, along with wet stones, and hints of smoke. Dry to taste, the palate is also tightly bound, but shows positively succulent and lush fruit flavours of gooseberries and herbs, unfolding to reveal tropical fruit elements. The acidity is lively, providing great tension and energy to the mouthfeel, and very fine textures provide linearity. Flavours of gooseberries, nettles, minerals and flint form a very long and sustained, dry finish. This is an elegant and tightly bound Sauvignon Blanc with fine, succulent fruit flavours. – Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, July 2013
A racy sauvignon, the bouquet shows lifted aromas of citrus, feijoa, passion-fruit and capsicum. It’s lively and taut on the palate with excellent intensity, finishing long and crisp. – Wine Orbit, 2013
