Bright, classic Awatere Sauvignon fruit notes of ripe white peach, citrus and honeydew melon, with hints of tropical fruit too - a soupcon of pineapple, a scintilla of mango. Altogether more restrained than you might expect though, textured too, with a well-judged herbaceousness - some basil leaf in there. There's a nice palate-cleansing minerality and it all hangs together on a tight line of zippy citrus acidity tempered by the tiniest hint of sweetness. A Marlborough Sauvignon that would test the conviction of any Marlborough Sauvignon hater.


Tasting Notes

To our mind, they're nothing short of pioneers, raising the bar for the whole New Zealand wine industry. The proof is there in the bottle. It's a more refined style of Sauvignon, one that's more grown-up. As Kim, himself says: "We've developed from our teenage years and we're now middle-aged, so we're so much more. We're not throwing our hormones and testosterone out there any more. We're quite restrained but hopefully a bit more complex." With 90+ points from New Zealand's top critics, and a gold medal in New Zealand's organic wine awards - you really can't dispute that they've nailed it with this wine.
