2019 Wairau Sauvignon Blanc

Wonderful aromatics of yellow flowers, lime, and a warm summer meadow. Lovely delicious palate brimming with nectarine, fresh lime, and hints of ripe nectarine and gooseberry finishing with a lovely long feel of the stony soils and refreshing acidity. 

Sourced from low yielding old vines averaging 25 years in age from the rocky, bony soils around the Renwick township in Marlborough blended with biodynamically grown hillside fruit from the Sam and Mandy Weavers Churton Vineyard.

$ 60.00 NZD

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.
The long, fresh finish and great balance will ensure that the wine will age gracefully over the next 5 - 7 years.

2017 Cantera

$ 60.00 NZD

A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice, sweet oak and vanillin 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.
