2017 Wairau Sauvignon Blanc

$ 28.00 NZD

A clear bright wine with a green tinge. Intensely aromatic classic nose with nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus characters. The fleshy yet lively palate has a lovely refreshing aspect yet it is dry with a bright refined finish. The extended time on lees give the wine fantastic palate weight and texture. Drink within 5 years.

2017 Heretaunga Chardonnay

$ 40.00 NZD

A clean and bright pale straw colour. Fruit flavours of citrus, white flowers, ripe grapefruit and melon. The style is mid-weight with elegant oak noticeably present, providing texture and lingering flavours of cashew, roasted almond and popcorn.

The structure is nicely fleshy with great concentration showing with finesse. It displays delicacy, but the richness and beautifully linear acidity make it a fantastic match with food.

The 2015 growing season has produced a wine that shows great concentration in a restrained package. Great aromatic complexity with citrus flavours, roasted nuts and fragrant flinty notes combining with an elegant, textured and seamless palate.

A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice and sweet oak in the background. The three varieties in this wine complement each other in both aroma and palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure, the Tempranillo, juiciness and flesh with the Cabernet Franc adding aromatic lift and freshness.

A unique Hawkes Bay blend with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.
