Food Pairing

A perfect match for seafood, goats cheese and many Asian inspired dishes.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The individual vineyard parcels were harvested at peak ripeness and transported to the winery for immediate processing to capture the freshness of the fruit. After pressing, the juice was settled bright and fermentation conducted at cool temperatures in both stainless steel tanks and french oak barrels. Post-fermentation the wines were left on their yeast lees with regular stirring to gain further richness and body before blending and bottling in late August 2021.

Soils And Viticulture

This wine is produced from fruit grown on gravel river terraces formed by the Ngaruroro River. The vineyards situated at Ohiti and Mangatahi are blessed with warm daytime temperatures coupled with cool night time temperatures, ideal for the production of elegant, intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc. Yields are carefully managed and intensive viticultural practices are undertaken to maximise quality
