Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Crafted on the edge of the earth, our organic, vegan-friendly single vineyard Resolute wines balance Marlborough's rugged exuberance and fruit expression with elegance and refinement. Crafted from a few hand-selected rows of Sauvignon Blanc within our vineyard in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Ara Resolute represents our unwavering dedication to showcasing the essence of Pure Marlborough. The fruit benefits from specific oak and ageing to create Ara’s iconic wine. Resolute is our purest expression of place.

A shining example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc versatility, this wine showcases the varietal’s depth and character. As soon as you open the bottle you’re struck by rich, complex aromas of ruby grapefruit, elderflower, lychee and lemon thyme. The palate gives over to refreshing citrus and passionfruit notes with a hint of hazelnut. Beautifully integrated acidity makes for a long, lean, crisp finish.

The two fruit parcels picked from our organic vineyard were treated separately. The first parcel was gently whole bunch pressed to minimize phenolic pick up and fermented in stainless steel at relatively cool temperatures to emphasise purity and aromatics. The second parcel was fermented and matured on lees in seasoned German oak Fuder barrels; this oak frames the fruit and adds weight to the palate, with warmer ferment temperatures bringing texture and complexity to the wine."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Beautifully lifted and instantly appealing, showing Granny Smith apple, kaffir lime, apricot and lemongrass characters on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent vibrancy and fruit intensity, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2025."


93/100 James Suckling (2021 Vintage)
"A pretty nose of dragon fruit, peaches and coloured flowers. Medium-bodied with brightness and a gentle approach. Subtle and nuanced but with a sneaky amount of concentration that keeps the rather pretty palate fresh and fruitful through a long finish. Refreshing tannins at the end."
