Wairau River Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Our Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is a slightly different take on this classic variety. Old vines from our Home vineyard give us the fruit for this wine every year, the quality of fruit from these old vines is always a bit mind blowing. We hand harvest the fruit, and a portion is fermented in old French oak to give texture and weight, and gives the wine agebility – for up to 10 years! This is a real food wine, it’s a stunning match with creamy seafood dishes.LEARN MORE

One of the last picks to come into our winery. Increased attention to detail from the viticulture team ensured that the grapes achieved optimal acid balance and sugar ripeness, as well as physiological ripeness. This has resulted in clean elegant wines, that show great concentration and poise from a challenging vintage. Fine weather towards the end of March allowed the development of a riper spectrum of tropical flavours.
Flowering commenced in the first week of December. During this period the region experienced higher than average rainfall limiting the potential yields. January and February were some of the warmest months on record culminating in one of the earliest harvests seen in the region. Picking began in the first week of March and concluded in the first week of April. The warm and fine weather through the late summer months has allowed the development of a riper spectrum of tropical flavours, making balanced stunning wines.

The lemony lime flavours of this wine pair beautifully to cut through the richness of the cream and prawns in this dish, delicious!
