Corofin is a small, independent wine company owned by Mike and Anna Paterson. The Paterson family were originally from Corofin, a village in County Clare, Ireland, hence the name of their business now. 'Meltwater' is the name for this particular wine, a nod to the ice-age glaciers that melted and filled the valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand long ago. Grapes for this were grown on vineyards on the slopes of the Wairau Valley, Marlborough.

A brand new Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough from a very elevated vineyard, where yields are low and picking dates are slightly later.  The combination allows excellent ripeness but not over-ripeness where freshness is maintained.

Melwater Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and crunchy wine with none of the stereotypical characters that are associated with this wine style. Gooseberry, tropical fruit and nice acidity, with a crisp clean finish. Very enjoyable!
