Certified organic fruit was hand-picked from our three vineyards between April 3 and April 21. Grapes were sourced from the upper terraces of the Home vineyard, which comprise varied Waimakiriri type soils of alluvial origin. This was supplemented by portions from the Tatou vineyard which is made up of a mixture of alluvial shingles, and the clay rich Raupo Creek vineyard.

"Bright yellow. Subdued, pure aromas of nectarine, spices, minerals, licorice and honey. Broad, concentrated, ripe and dry, with a tactile dusty texture to the pineappley fruit. Finishes chewy, savory and very persistent, with uncompromising dryness. Serious stuff."Rating 91 - Stephen Tanzer, Wine Access, September 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
This Sauvignon Blanc displays tropical and citrus aromas framed by a fresh acidity and underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity.
The palate is finely textured with gooseberry, subtle lychee and mineral flavours leading to a persistent finish. This wine is drinking well now but will develop well over the next five years.
