Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

We love the Awatere Valley for its bold, intense flavors. The Awatere’s slightly cooler climate and varying soils produce wines with great aromatic intensity and, if handled right, great concentration of flavor. Our Westhaven and Cobden blocks are carefully managed for yield to create exactly this. A warm and dry 2016 season along with great vineyard management has given us another fantastic regional Sauvignon Blanc exuding punchy, vibrant, tropical fruit with a strong lime and citrus edge.

Reviews

"The wine is intensely aromatic on the nose displaying grapefruit, feijoa, lime zest and sweet basil characters. It is juicy and lively on the palate with excellent mid palate weight, beautifully structured by fine texture and bright acidity. A real mouth-watering offering from the Awatere Valley. At its best: now to 2019."
