Description

Tasting Note:  Light straw, with a green hue. Aromas of classic gooseberry, blackcurrant, grapefruit and fresh herbs, with complexing wet rock and nettle notes, typical of the Awatere Valley sub-region. On the palate a medium-bodied with concentrated and vibrant ripe green flavours and a crunchy mouthwatering texture that persist onto a long, balanced finish. 

Food Matching: Delicious with oysters or green shell mussels, as well as lobster and white fish. The wine also pairs nicely with summer salads, poultry and goat’s cheese. Our ‘Greg’ Sauvignon Blanc is also the perfect aperitif.

Grape Variety:  100% Sauvignon Blanc, MS clone

Terroir/Vinification

Climate: 2020 was a classical growing season with plenty of sunshine, not too much heat through Summer and a return to cool nights preceding harvest, ensuring acidities and flavours remained bright and vibrant. This was all built on good rainfall pre Christmas, which set the vines up with healthy working canopies that held through to the end of harvest. The weather over harvest was settled and dry, allowing fruit to be harvested in lovely conditions.

Acidity: 6.8g/l
PH: 3.17
Residual sugar: 4.2g/l
