The Sandpiper range is named after the migratory bird which visits the Thorn-Clarke vineyards annually from the northern hemisphere - something of a reminder of the tenacity and commitment which is required for long term viticulture.

Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is pale straw with a green hue on release.
The aroma is fresh lifted lemon with floral bath salt like tones. Bright ripe lemon fruit characters dominate the palate and crisp minerally acid forms the backbone of the wine.
The palate has good fruit weight balanced by natural acidity. The wine has a refreshingly clean finish with long acid persistence. This wine can be enjoyed young and fresh or carefully cellared for up to and possibly beyond 2020 to show delicious aged Riesling characters.
