Discover our new range that showcases Marlborough's finest.
This crisp, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand. The Awatere Valley is well-known for producing Sauv with tropical aromatics, such as grilled pineapple and dry herbs, and for delivering wine with beautiful texture and age ability. The two blocks selected for this wine combine to produce a wonderfully aromatic and delicate Sauvignon Blanc that is classically Awatere in character.
On The Nose
Expect fresh herbs with green pineapple and kaffir lime, with subtle salt air characters.
On The Palate
Enjoy the lively crispness, balanced by richness from the barrel fermented component. Flavours of grilled pineapple with a mineral edge and subtle tomato stalk on the finish.
NEW! Our brand new Uncharted range invites you to discover the best of Marlborough. A place between the snow and the sea, where mountain ranges give way to rivers, and sunshine reigns supreme. Experience our tribute to this beautiful, untameable region. Join us, on an Uncharted journey.
Awatere Valley, Marlborough
We pay particular attention to detail in our Uncharted wines, selecting only small premium parcels of fruit from two of our Awatere Valley vineyards with heavier soils. This adds texture and subtle flint notes, and ensures an intense and distinctive flavour profile that characterises the Awatere Valley subregion.
This wine is aged on lees for three to four months which gives a really beautiful mouth feel. A small percentage of the wine is aged in 1000L German Fuder barrels, allowing our winemakers to add just a touch of oak while allowing the fruit to sing.
"A calm satin textured bouquet leading to ripe citrus, soft sage and basil herb qualities, mineral, lees and youthful varietal appeal. On the palate - tense, vibrant, fresh and youthful with a core of fresh white peach, lemon, sage and mineral flavours. The firm youthful texture with acidity and fruit spice, lees and moderate alcohol dovetail nicely into a lengthy, balanced and true Sauvignon Blanc finish. Great drinking today and through 2024+"
"It's beautifully composed and wonderfully flavoursome, showing passionfruit, kiwifruit, kaffir lime and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent weight and fruit intensity, finishing impressively long and delicious. At its best: now to 2024. "
