2017 Vintage details

In honesty, one of the hardest vintages. The conditions in lead u to harvest looked promising, vines were healthy, yields down slightly compared to the 2016 season. But rain, and cooler conditions made for a later season, so the Sauvignon in particular was a little more restrained but produced a wonderfully distinct acid line. Although challenging, the conditions favoured our barrel ferment winemaking style.

2017 Reviews

Complex, ripe and pure fruit scented bouquet. Aromas of fresh white peach and preserved lemon, fresh tropical fruits of pineapple and green mango then apple and fresh herbs. On the palate - textured, fruity, varietal and spicy. Flavours reflect the nose with a spicy acid tang, wet stone mineralogy and lengthy salivating and lightly salty finish. Well made and ready to drink upon purchase and through to 2023." 94 points.

"A gorgeous alternative-style; the complex bouquet shows baked apple, gun smoke, grapefruit

and lime peel aromas with a hint of oatmeal. It's concentrated and weighty on the palate, delivering lovely roundness backed by firm acidity, finishing impressively long and expansive. At its best now to 2023. 93 pts. 5 stars.

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

A wine with a conscious, not many of those around! This Sauvignon Blanc has a certified (by CarbonClick) 200% carbon offset, meaning instead of being a drain on the world’s resources, they are adding to them. Fermented with a combination of wild and inoculated yeast strains, 15% of the wine was aged in barrel and then held back in bottle before release, a truly unique wine.

Yesssssss, a well-made sauvignon blanc with a little age can be such a treat, and this one is perfect! Stunning tropical notes on the nose, passionfruit with touches of fresh lychee, citrus and handfuls of freshly picked white flowers, then as the wine opens up a slight greenness creeps in adding to the complexity. The textural palate has weight, but the flavours remain vibrant, grapefruit, lemon, and apple with a big splash of acidity and crunchy minerals on the finish. Drink on its own or with crayfish, oysters, or mussels.

Angie Atkinson, The Wine Writer

 

The 2017 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Waihopai Valley and partly (15 per cent) barrel-aged. Maturing gracefully, it is a light yellow/green, mouthfilling wine, with vigorous, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and a crisp, dry, lingering finish. 4.5 Stars.
