Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Our Limited Release Sauvignon Blanc was made from a selection of our most expressive fruit from the 2021 vintage. The wine was made from 100% Wairau Valley fruit from our estate owned Grovetown and Litchfield vineyards. The wine we’ve made shows impeccable fruit expression, concentration and balance.
A complex and expressive nose showing citrus, passionfruit, crushed herb and nettle characters. A wine of striking fruit purity and concentration with fresh but balanced acidity and great length of flavour."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and instantly appealing, the wine shows passionfruit, lime peel, Granny Smith apple and floral notes on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate offering immense power and persistency. Beautifully textured too, this is delicious and lingering. At its best: now to 2025."
