A crisp and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with typical flavors and aromas of tropical fruits supported by pleasant herbal/grassy notes. An ideal wine with seafood or chicken dishes and fresh summer salads.
Marlborough’s worst-ever fire, Boxing Day 2000, burned for more than three days.
Before it was over, it had killed thousands of stock, and threatened the wine town of Blenheim — not to mention a number of vineyards and wineries. Disaster was averted when the brave residents battled the blaze using buckets and hand-held hoses, eventually assisted by a fortunate wind shift.
Where those residents made their stand is now known as Fireroad, and the Fire Road label honors their bravery. The vineyards that provide the grapes for Fire Road wines flourish in the same hot and dry climate that was the catalyst for such a mighty blaze.
The Fire Road This Sauvignon Blanc is made in a style common to New Zealand’s Marlborough growing area, with a pungent aroma that leads to a refreshing mouthfeel. This is the wine to drink when the weather gets hot, accompanied by fresh seafood or white meat dishes.
