The Better Half Sauvignon Blanc 2018



Winemaker George Elworthy’s sleek and racy Sauvie is an absolute joy. Confident with a positive nose of rocket leaf, red pepper, lemon sorbet, gooseberry and elderflower. Dry but luscious, there’s a fine symmetry between the heady richness and zesty freshness, with fleshy, exotic mango on the palate countered by energetic acidity.

Beautiful with Tandoori chicken or tomato and basil salad.

Producer: The Better Half

With more than 18 years of accomplished wine making experience in Marlborough New Zealand, George Elworthy had been assisting wife Jules Taylor with her eponymous range of best selling wines when he decided to dust off his wine-making hat to create a new range of wines, aptly named ‘The Better Half’. After gaining recognition at Marlborough based producers Seresin Estate, Cloudy Bay, Allan Scott and Vavasour he was also founding winemaker at The Crossings to great acclaim and had been fortunate enough to learn from and experience a number of vintages in Italy. Crafted with grapes sourced from the fairer side of vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, The Better Half is the perfect expression of the world renowned Marlborough wine region.
