2 out of 4 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.

Not your typical sav but still enjoyable enough. Not as acidic as expected and a little sweeter with a smokey flavour coming through.

Wow! It says it all about this sensational wine. The vineyard produced exceptionally good fruit with flavours and aromatics to rival Marlborough. The winemaker dutifully delivered in making this into an amazing wine. We bought up big and are very pleased to have available the 2018 Ghost Hawk Sauvignon Blanc. We know you will be impressed, when we say we are, we mean it 100%!
This is a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, loaded with tropical fruit, capsicum and sweet stone fruit. This is the perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes, lemon herb chicken and salads. Or enjoy on its own as an aperitif.

5 Stars "It’s instantly attractive on the nose showing lifted aromas of peach, ripe citrus, feijoa and lime zest. The palate is succulent and flavoursome with excellent intensity and vibrancy, finishing long and tasty." Sam Kim
Pale lemon with bright clarity colour. Lifted grapefruit pith, tropical fruits, red capsicum and gun flint aroma. A medium bodied wine with a fresh acidity, brightening the intense fruit flavours and aiding the long, clean finish.
