Description

  • Dry style
  • Blackcurrant & pawpaw
  • Capsicum & kaffir lime
  • Mouth-watering acidity

"This is a magnificent offering; the gorgeously inviting bouquet shows feijoa, kiwifruit, nettle and kaffir lime notes, leading to a concentrated palate that's pristine and lingering. The wine offers outstanding fruit purity backed by fine texture and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing impressively long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

"Fresh, ripe, sophisticated and nicely complex bouquet. Aromas of sweet red apple and citrus, a soft leesy spice and white flowers, wet stone and crushed fresh herbs. A seamless transition to the palate revealing a silky texture, abundant acidity and flavours that reflect the nose - citrus, apple then white peach, floral notes and stony mineral layers. Lengthy finish, beautifully balanced and well made. Best drinking from today and through 2023+" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, Aug 2020

"Bright, even, youthful pale yellow. The nose is vibrant with well-proportioned aromas of gooseberry, apple, kiwi, lime and zest, along with elderflower, slight flint and mineral. Light-bodied, gentle and bright flavour of Granny Smith's apple, lime and zest, kiwi fruit entwined with elderflower cordial, saline, oyster shells and prickly spices to a lengthy finish. The fruit is bright and fresh, crispy without being green or overly fruity. Smooth and clean textured with a roundness from the light lees ageing, complemented by a light chalky, oyster shells phenolic. Crisp, bright acidity flows with good energy and balance to a long finish. This is a crisp and pleasurable Sauvignon Blanc with a pure expression of green fruit, elderflower on a smooth-flowing, sea mineral texture line. Match with diamond clams and blue cod over the next 3-4 years. Fermented in a mixture of stainless steel, concrete egg and clay amphora to 13.5% alc, 3.2 g/l RS. Aged on lees for 3 months" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Aug 2020

Bright straw in colour, this classy Sauvignon Blanc has explosive aromatics of blackcurrant, juniper berry, Jasmine and pawpaw that mingle with subtle notes of fresh capsicum, pea pod and grass. Dry and saline, persistent flavours of kaffir lime and passionfruit are revealed alongside bright, mouth-watering acidity. The distinctive palate has a lovely creamy texture and a smooth, pure finish.

The name Convergence signifies the coming together of flavours from our Wairau and Awatere Valley vineyards.

A prolonged Indian summer with cool nights, typical of Marlborough, led to expressive wines with great natural acidity. The season produced pristine fruit with beautifully ripe flavours. Harvested early morning and lightly pressed, the juice was fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and character. A small portion was fermented in concrete egg tank and clay amphora to add a grainy texture to the palate. The wine was then aged on light yeast lees for three months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel.
