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.
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.
