Gold Medal & 96/100 – Decanter World Wine Awards 2019


Not many Sauvignon Blancs at these sorts of dollars taste as good as this. The 2018 Durvillea shows the Awatere influence with a crunchy red currant leaf character showing through the lusher tropicals and citrus. The hall marks of excellent balance, texture and length hark back to its Astrolabe origins and reflect the quality and care that goes into this wine too. For the money, it's a no brainer!


Simon Waghorn, Winemaker
"Along our shores holding fast to the rocks at low tide is the seaweed Durvillea, named after the captain of the Astrolabe, Dumont D’Urville. For me this seaweed defines the ruggedness of our rocky coast.The Durvillea Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes harvested at precisely the right moment to preserve the purity and intensity of flavour in my winemaking."


DWWA 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Appealing aromas of citrus, herbs and tropical notes. Bright, slightly steely with mineral, wet stone. Gooseberry and nettle flavours and crisp textured freshness."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Bargain-priced, the 2017 vintage was grown in the Awatere Valley (46 per cent), Wairau Valley (41 per cent), and further south, on the Kekerengu Coast (13 per cent). Freshly aromatic, it is mouthfilling and dry (2.3 grams/litre of residual sugar), with ripely herbaceous flavours, showing a touch of complexity, slightly salty and minerally notes, and a long finish."
