There is a windswept elegance to Marlborough’s famed Wairau Valley. It is both the heart of the district and home to some of the country’s most famous wines. The region takes its name from the Wairau River, which flows from the alpine ranges in the west to the ocean at Cloudy Bay. Wines from the Wairau Valley are rich, elegant, generous and concentrated. Goldwater’s wines are considered by many aficionados to be among the finest of the appellation.

Winery Tasting Notes
We gently harvest during the cool morning hours to retain the bright, pristine characteristics of the grapes. With the fruit arriving at our winery possessing such extraordinary flavours and textures, our primary task is to preserve and enhance those elements.
Our Sauvignon Blanc shows the influence of our unique climate and complex soils. After harvesting, we gently press the fruit and cold settle the juice before transferring to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation.
The aromas and flavours are packed with grapefruit, passionfruit and melon. The palate is crisp, bold, well balanced and refreshing.
