A punchy yet elegant example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with passionfruit and citrus flavours.
Tropical notes of passionfruit are driven by aromatic blackcurrant, lime leaf and zesty grapefruit.
An elegantly textured palate offers succulent fruit, fresh lingering acidity and a long, dry finish.
Fresh grilled fish with a citrus and fennel salad.
Ready to drink now, but will reward with 3-5 years cellaring.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night, then gently crushed and pressed, though a handpicked portion were kept separate and destemmed and left on skins for 7 days before pressing to oak barrel for fermentation. After cold settling, the remaining juice was cool fermented in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to add complexity and retain the vibrant vineyard characteristics. Once fermentation was finished, the wine was racked and allowed to relax on light yeast lees to aid complexity and mouthfeel, before being bottled on 22 July, 2019.
We live amongst the vineyards in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. For us it’s all about lifestyle. We’re lucky to enjoy the simple things from the land; like fresh crayfish, scallop season and wild venison. And because our wines are available in cities around the world, we also thrive on what the world has to offer. Pretty much the best of both worlds we reckon.
Our fresh accessible style of wine is made to be shared. Crisp whites, rich aromatics and reds with depth and purity.Everyday wines to enjoy on any occasion.
“When friends pop round, it’s our ‘go to’ wine. You could say it’s our house red.”
– Jack Glover
The South Island of New Zealand covers over 151,215km2 ofrugged mountains, lakes, glaciers, ski fields and rivers. As proud guardians of the land our iconic vineyards are located in some of New Zealand's defining wine regions: Marlborough, Central Otago and the Waipara Valley. Each location has been selected with care and foresight; and as a result we aim to interfere as little as possible once the grapes arrive in the hands of the winemakers. Each vintage we create a portfolio of pure, expressive, balanced, vibrant and honest wines.
