      • If this wine was in human form it would be 2 inches taller than everyone else - a veritable giant of a wine, complete with serious concentration and intensity to burn. A single vineyard Sauv from the beating heart of New Zealand Sauv Blanc, this is a wine for serious savvy fans.

      • The Premium Sauvignon Blanc is a single-vineyard wine sourced from our own sustainably managed vineyard at Cravens Road in Marlborough's famous Wairau Valley. The grapes were picked at a range of ripeness levels for optimum flavour and complexity. We separated the main block into a number of zones and varied the amount of leaf plucking in each. This directly affects the fruits flavour and composition, with more exposure to the Marlborough sun leading to riper, more tropical flavours.

        Aromas of nettle and tomato leaf are softened by subtle tropical notes. The Palate has a wonderful mineral centre surrounded by layers of complexity from wild fermentation. The use of seasoned french oak casks has added further weight and complexity. It finishes with a crisp and fresh snap.
