HOME GROWN The two largest wine regions in New Zealand, Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere valleys sit side by side and produce the world’s most distinctive Sauvignon Blanc. Wairau fruit gives richness and weight while fruit from the cooler Awatere area is famous for its finesse and minerality. We combine only the best fruit we can source from both regions to create a ‘dream blend’ which we’re really proud of. Why is the world so in love with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc? One sip of this and you’ll see why. Marlborough is nice and flat, making it a brilliant place to hire a bike and wheel your way around the wineries. Tour organisers will arrange pick up and drop off and the bikes have bottle carriers – meaning it’s easy to stash your treasures as you ride.
GRAPE TO BOTTLE We use lots of whiz-bang technology in our winery to make sure our Sauvignon Blanc is treated carefully in order to extract all those pure, punchy flavours it is famous for. Cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks using special yeasts to bring out the best in the fruit, our Sauvignon Blanc then spent a bit of time on its lees to lend some extra texture in the mouth. Once that’s done we simply pop it in a bottle for you to enjoy.
