    VARIETY AND STYLE

    From grapes hand-harvested from our own established and family-owned vineyard high in the subalpine Waihopai Valley.

    Single vineyard, 100% pure Sauvignon Blanc, low cropped, hand-picked, and lees-aged, grown on the uplifted 300,000 year old river terraces of our Jurassic Terrace vineyard in the Waihopai Valley over underlying alpine greywacke dating from the Upper Jurassic period. This Valley is part of the so-called ‘exciting new Southern Valleys' sub-region of Marlborough.

    Fresh and zingy with intense complex tropical fruit (guava, passionfruit and stonefruit), plus a creamy rich mouthfeel, long palate and lingering grapefruit finish. Many years of cellaring potential to go if it gets a chance. As fresh and fruity as the day it was made!
