Mayfly, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2023

Producer Profile

The Mayfly, so symbolic of the first warmth of summer, drift down New Zealand's crystalline streams and rivers providing food for the voracious trout that have made this a mecca for fly-fisherman the world over.

The same pristine environment has proved to be the best place to produce the vibrant and refreshing Mayfly wines. We are sure that this crisp Marlborough wine will have wine drinkers hooked.


All of the fruit comes from the single Kerseley estate vineyard from vines planted between 1991 and 2008. Grown on a VSP trellis system, the vineyards are in the Dillons point area around half a mile from the sea.


Fermentation in stainless tank at low temperature with natural yeasts to ensure the single site is expressed in the wine.

No oak ageing

Tasting Note

No tricks here, just a youthful and exquisite Sauvignon Blanc with an intensely aromatic nose of grapefruit, passionfruit, lime and ginger. The palate is crisp, textural and citrus laced followed by hints of lime cordial, grapefruit and lychee. Long and intense on the finish.

Food Matching

Grilled fish, Asian style seafood, even Thai!
