Our Sauvignon Blanc pushes the boundaries of the typical New Zealand flavor profile. By highlighting decadent tropical flavors, toning down the grassiness and bringing a creamy mid-palate all the way through to a crisp finish with bright minerality, we have set a new precedence for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Pair our Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc with shellfish, chicken dishes, and especially a good attitude.

2013 was an extremely good vintage. Good flowering led to very even fruit set and even growth throughout the vineyard. The season progressed very well. An excellent warm dry summer led to a harvest that took place in almost ideal weather conditions. Clean, healthy, and ripe Sauvignon Blanc was harvested at the beginning of the second week of April, which was a little earlier than average. The wine was fermented with a variety of neutral and aromatic yeasts. Separate components were aged on lees for 6 months prior to blending and bottling.

The majority of the Sauvignon Blanc is planted on the most northern part of the vineyard which is cooler and more suited to this variety. All of our Sauvignon Blanc is hand-thinned and machine harvested before it is pressed into juice on site.

The planted clones are a mix of University of California Davis (UCD) 1 and Mass selection (MS) on a mix of 101-14, 3309 and Schwarzmann rootstock, with a quarter of the vines Bordeaux clones BDX 316 and BDX 317, on Riparia Gloire rootstock. The Bordeaux clones tend to give a definite lift to Sauvignon Blanc flavours, with less cut grass and more tropical flavours providing a more artisan style, balanced, elegant wine which compliments a range of foods.
