4.5 stars 91 Points Sam Kim

"Delightfully fruited and elegantly fragrant, the wine shows green apple, feijoa, lime peel and rockmelon characters, leading to a juicy palate that is flavoursome and vibrant. The wine offers bright fruit flavours and fine texture, backed by crisp acidity, finishing long and tasty. At its best: now to 2021"

We are delighted to offer this bargain Sauvignon from a Boutique producer, it was destined for an off shore deal but we grabbed it instead! 

Classic Marlborough Sav with heaps of personality, aromas of cut grass feijoa and juicy tropical fruit. Beautifully textured and zippy freshness...killer!

Ra Nui wines;  “the wine is in the grape” and so we focus on the vineyard and the grape, and we grow our wine using the time honoured traditions of Sun, Soil and Passion. We are small and focused without constraint, and this allows us the hands on intensity that only a small winemaker can have. Grapes are hand picked in the vineyard and transported direct to the winery. At the winery further hand selection takes place discarding any unwanted fruit before transferring to the press. We then further ensure that we retain all purity of texture and flavour by whole bunch pressing for all white wines in order to minimise skin contact resulting in juice with fine texture and maximum flavour. We see ourselves as “guardians” of the grape and adopt a low key non interventionist approach to our winemaking.
