  • Tasting notes

    The bouquet shows ripe notes of passionfruit and guava, underpinned with aromas of fresh herbs and blackcurrant. The palate is brimming with zingy fruit that is balanced with a long, crisp mineral finish. Enjoy with both fresh and cooked seafood dishes such as oysters, prawns, green lip mussel and fish.This wine is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and gluten free diets.

  • Viticultural notes

    Clear, sunny days and cool nights produced the perfect ripening conditions leading up to a successful 2015 harvest. Apart from a limited period of unseasonal rain, the region remained very dry right throughout the summer months and into early autumn. In fact, we commenced harvest of most varieties at least one week early.

  • Winemaking notes

    Ten parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from the Seaview Vineyard and two from Wairau Valley Vineyard were selected to blend this wine. The parcels were harvested individually over a period of eight days. The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off. A cool fermentation in stainless steel followed, to capture and enhance the natural fruit flavours.

    April 2017

    Whiffs of smoke and honeysuckle add an aromatic accent to the core of peach, pear and mango flavors in this white, which is juicy on the long, crisp, clean finish.
