Description

"Displaying lovely purity and poise, the wine shows nectarine, feijoa and lemon peel aromas on the nose, leading to a focused palate that is finely textured and vibrant. It is pristine and lively with a terrific thirst-quenching finish. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2019

"Impressively concentrated sauvignon blanc with apple, nectarine and a suggestion of oyster shell and mineral character supported by knife-edged acidity that breathes life and energy into the wine. A good food wine" Bob Campbell MW, Oct 2019

A dry and warm summer with cool nights has produced a wine with pungent aromatics and crisp acidity. Gooseberry, lime and guava aromas lead into a rich, mouth filling palate that tastes of passionfruit, grapefruit and a lovely chalkiness. The wine is crisp and bright with a lingering finish.

Premium grapes were first grown in Te Awanga at the beginning of last century. The warm coastal climate, gentle sea breezes and the shallow clay soils combine to produce award winning wines of great varietal flavour and finesse. Expert canopy management, including shoot thinning and leaf plucking, has ensured vine health, ideal vineyard flavours and clean, ripe fruit.

Simple winemaking and attention to detail is what’s needed to make great Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit was gently pressed, the juice cool settled and racked clear for fermentation in tank. An extended period on yeast lees in tank has increased the richness and texture.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with a goats cheese & caramelised onion tart.
