Despite apparently using Lundy Island as a base for piracy against North Devon traders and along the English coast, one William de Marisco was strangely appointed to be in charge of a number of the Royal Galleys – whose very purpose was to defend against such piracy. William was also granted the Manor of Braunton (in Devon) by King John – both these factors were surprising evidence of the King’s Favour.
Sourced from the Leefield Station and Waihopai River Vineyards.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
A classic Waihopai Sauvignon Blanc delivering tropical notes of guava and goosberry with underlying ripe citrus and boxhedge aromas. The textually-layered palate builds from a stone fruit and blackcurrant foundation and ends with persistency stemming from vibrant Marlborough acidity.
This bright, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc pairs wonderfully with an array of summer fare. Enjoy a chilled glass with crispy-skinned snapper served with a minted mango salsa, fresh arugula and thrice cooked fries.
