Description

"Bright and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, passionfruit, kiwifruit and lemon zest characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is juicy and refreshing. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity backed by crisp acidity, finishing long and very tasty. At its best: now to 2020. $20.00" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sept 2018

"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with moderately deep aromas of pungent passionfruit along with notes of tropical fruits and fresh herbs. This is rounded in expression, and unfolds green stonefruit and floral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and elegant with a rich heart of pungent passionfruit along with fresh and savoury herbs, tropical fruits and green stonefruits. The mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh acidity and the wine flows with good energy, drive and line to a lingering finish. This is a softly elegant, punchy, passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with a smooth flow and freshness. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Terrace’ vineyard, Ormond Valley Road, given 12 hours skin contact and indigenous yeast fermented in tank to 12.5% alc. and 5.1 g/L RS. Certified Asurequality Organic" Raymond Chan, Sep 2018 

The wine has slight blackcurrant, passionate fruit flavours with hints of feijoa and lime. Lovely balanced crisp acidity with a nice natural sweet refreshing finish.

The original plants for Natural Wine Co came to New Zealand in the 1980’s and all natural Wine Company vines are planted on their own roots and certified organic.

A Sauvignon Blanc not from Marlborough, but sunny Gisborne. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tank, cool fermented and minimal time on yeast lees, to ensure a clean fresh style.
