EXPORT DEAL ALERT! This wine was headed off shore but we nabbed it instead.

Silver Medal - NZ International Wine Show 2019
4.5 stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2020
"Beautifully ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows ripe apricot, Gala apple and lemon/lime zest aromas on the nose. The palate is equally attractive with excellent fruit intensity together with fine texture and crisp acidity, leading to a lengthy juicy finish. At its best: now to 2021." Sam Kim

In 1842 James Holdaway arrived in Nelson and by 1853 at only 17 years of age he was working in Marlborough. One of his many jobs was driving a bullock dray carrying wool from the Awatere Valley to the Wairau Bar. In 1864 he purchased land in Dillons Point on the lower Wairau plains which he named Lowlands. Now his descendants grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes on this land.

The 2019 vintage was an outstanding one for Marlborough. We had a cooler period through flowering, which naturally lowered crop levels. A warm and dry summer gave us perfect ripening conditions, resulting in clean fruit with excellent flavour concentration.

A beautiful and classically styled wine, Aromas of green apple, melon and citrus zest. Juicy and ripe on the palate. Delicate minerality and fresh acidity. Most lengthy on the finish.
