1 out of 3 customers rated this wine as good value for money.

The focus of this wine is to achieve balance between maintaining the pure Sauvignon fruit vibrancy and building in complex yeast and barrel derived flavours.  Lime skin and elderflower aromas along with a mineral, crushed stone note, marry with nutty yeasty characters and a savoury edge. While this wine is ready to drink now, it can be cellared for up to four years.

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the home vineyard at Opaki in the Wairarapa.  These blocks receive special care during the season with shoot thinning, bunch thinning and hand leaf plucking to ensure a small and intense crop of premium grapes.  Absolute commitment to physiological ripeness is crucial.
The focus in the winery is to capture the pure fruit flavours that come from supremely ripe fruit, whilst adding complexity through barrel fermentation, use of wild yeasts (yeast that come in on the grapes from the vineyard) and lees stirring. The wine remains in the barrel on yeast for 10 months to give weight and complexity.

This wine is drinking beautifully. Made to drink with a few years bottle age to release the full flavoured elegance from the wild fermentation and oak. If you like Cloudy Bay Te Koko or Dog Point Section 94 then this wine will appeal AND without the $40 price tag. No need to cellar to get it drinking at its best, just crack it now and enjoy

I am an avid Sav consumer unfortunately this wine is not up to my Sav standard. From the nose to taste and after taste there was a chemical smell and taste. Another person who tried it describes the wine as a watery with little or now taste on the tongue! Perhaps we got 'one out of the bag'. and were unlucky.

90 Points Sam Kim Wine Orbit

“It is beautifully lifted on the nose showing rockmelon, nectarine, lime zest and subtle herbaceous notes. The palate delivers loads of tasty flavours and excellent fruit intensity, leading to a lingering mouth-watering finish. It is generously expressed and immensely likable. At its best: now to 2018.”- Sam Kim

100% Certified Organic wine. This wine displays a lively nose showing ripe stonefruit, citrus and melons. The palate is packed with the same flavours layered on top of a well textured mineral backbone. The result is a mouth-filling and layered wine which balances lively fruit sweetness with crisp acidity.
