Description

  • Dry style
  • Feijoa & gooseberry
  • Citrus & lime
  • Mineral acidity

"A gorgeous restrained style, the bouquet shows grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, oatmeal and lemon peel aromas, followed by a finely focused palate displaying excellent weight and persistency. It's firmly structured by vibrant acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2021

"I am not sure what the secret is here – potentially organic grapegrowing or high quality vineyards. But whatever it is this wine is a delicious example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, if in a slightly atypical and ripe style. It’s expressive and aromatically generous with layers of ripe guava fruits plus the barest hint of dried herbs – not a bit of green asparagus or gooseberry here! It’s then dry and quite mouthfilling with more gentle acidity than usual plus a finish that shows good concentration and length. If you’ve gone off Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, then this wine might be the one to get you back on the Kiwi wine train, and it also offers great value for money" Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot

"Great packaging as always from Fourth Wave. Organic certified. Tangy and tart, zesty, evocative, lemon juice squeezed on passionfruit, some grassines in the mix. Quintessential stuff here. Nice, fresh, well put together without raising a pulse. Nicely done. High drinkability" Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

Pale in colour with hints of green. The nose is trademark Kiwi Savvy with gooseberry aromas given complexity by feijoa and citrus. The palate displays lime, and passionfruit flavours carried by a fine mineral acid backbone.

A prolonged Indian summer with cool nights led to expressive wines with great natural acidity. The season produced pristine fruit with ripe concentrated flavours.Vibrant, bristling with energy and ripe concentrated flavours is how Marlborough winemakers described the 2020 vintage, with some declaring it was the best quality they had seen in a decade.

Hand-picked into small bins and chilled before transportation to the winery, this wine saw a cool fermentation in stainless steel before extended maturation on lees to build texture and complexity.

Earth Mother is a homage to mother nature. Devoted guardian of our lands and our vineyards and in keeping with that theme these wines are organic and vegan friendly. Organic wines are sourced from fully certified Organic vineyards and made using minimal additions. Made with fruit from the Valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand this wine has been crafted by the elements and shaped by the vast landscape of its home.

Food Pairing: Pair with fresh oysters or a goats cheese salad.
