An organic wine grown in living soil. This Sauvignon Blanc wine is a true reflection of the grape. Clean and vibrant, a pure expression of New Zealand nature.

Aroma & Palate

This wine is a pale lemon colour. The nose is powerfully aromatic, with intense passionfruit, capsicum, fennel and white pepper notes. These echo on the palate which is medium-bodied with great concentration. Punchy flavours of citrus and green herbs complete this lively wine, sitting on vibrant fruit acids, and leading to a persistent finish.

Enjoy With

This wine has a big personality and will work well with a multitude of flavoursome dishes. Great served with cured meats and soft cheeses in a platter. Try with fresh salads
featuring citrus vinaigrette and green herb accents. Mild curries will be a hit such as a Tandoori chicken or Biryani.

Seafood is a classic match such as grilled fish fillets or king prawns and a squeeze of lemon. Tomato based dishes will also work well including many Italian meals from simple pizza margherita through to a rich ragu.

WINEMAKING DETAILS

The vines are 15 year-old, Mass Selected clones, grown on SO4 rootstock. They are trained to VSP with 2 cane pruning, which keeps yields low and fruit quality high. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine were harvested end of March, in optimal, dry harvest conditions. Machine harvesters were used and then the fruit immediately trucked to the winery for gentle pneumatic pressing.

 

Juice was clarified with minimal oxygen contact and sent to a stainless steel tank for fermentation. Fermentation was started with selected aromatic yeasts, at cool temperature throughout. After fermentation the wine was blended and stabilised, then filtered before bottling. No oak was used in the winemaking, and no animal products. This wine is certified as organic and vegan.
