Winemaker's Notes

Vibrant Palate

Highly aromatic fruit flavours of blackcurrant leaf and citrus blossom with a vibrant palate that is pure with an elegant mineral finish.

More information

Awatere Valley


Our Seaview Vineyard is the most coastal vineyard in New Zealand and experiences some fairly harsh conditions as a result. It produces small, thick-skinned berries with intense flavours. In comparison, our Willow Flat Vineyard is further inland with reduced coastal influences, and creates a much sweeter fruit.

Diverse Conditions

Two parcels from the Awatere Valley were selected to create this wine. One from our coastal Seaview Vineyard and the other, more inland, from our Willow Flat Vineyard.

This Sauvignon Blanc shows the wonderful typicity that the Awatere Valley is known for.

We allowed this Sauvignon Blanc a long cool fermentation in stainless steel to capture and enhance the pure fruit flavours.

Winemaking Analysis


Winemaker's Notes

Cool Fermentation

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, followed by a long cool fermentation in stainless steel. The individual parcels were fermented separately using selected yeasts before they were blended, stabilised, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Perfect with Seafood

Enjoy with both fresh and cooked seafood such as oysters, prawns mussels or fish.

Food Pairings

Fish, mussels, oysters or prawns.

Our Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is excellent with fish dishes, both fresh and cooked.

Winestate Magazine

"Bargain-priced, this estate-grown wine is full of youthful impact. Full-bodied, it is ripe and concentrated, with passionfruit-like notes to the fore, coupled with fresh acidity and a dry, long finish. Excellent drinking through 2020."
