The crisp acidity of this Sauvignon Blanc from Barker’s Marque carries a solid core of lemon grass, lime zest, the tang of cut lawn, plus a hint of dried herbs and a touch of minerality. It packs a fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd.
“ranga ranga” means gentle breeze in the langauge of New Zealand’s Maori people. The cooling winds of the cool Pacific ocean lie less than a mile from the vineyards and help to ensure an earlier start and a later finish to our extended growing season.
Picked for freshness and fermented in stainless steel at very cool temperatures, the balance of ranga is exactly right – each mouthful is full of those “ripe green” flavors at the center of what Marlborough has to offer.
Matches well to spicy food – Thai, Japanese, Indian, but works equally well with seafood and fat cheeses.
