Who says you can't make good Sauvignon Blanc in Auckland? Grown in the company's Rothesay Vineyard at Waimauku, in West Auckland, at its best it shows the weight and ripe tropical-fruit flavours of North Island grapes, with good acidity keeping things fresh and lively. The 2004 vintage has slightly nettley aromas leading into a fresh, dry palate with good weight, texture and depth of sweet fruit flavours, suggestive of pears and figs.

Who says you can't make classy Sauvignon Blanc in Auckland? Grown in the company's Rothesay Vineyard at Waimauku, in West Auckland, it's a sophisticated, satisfying Sauvignon, partly French oak-fermented. At its best, it shows the weight and ripe tropical fruit flavours of North Island grapes, with good acidity keeping things fresh and lively, and subtle oak adding richness. The 2001 vintage is greener-edged than usual, reflecting the challenging season. Mingling tropical fruit and herbaceous characters on the nose, it's a full-bodied, strongly varietal wine with some complexity and a crisp, flinty, long finish.

Light green-yellow; a spotlessly clean and crisp bouquet of medium intensity with herbal and gooseberry fruit. The tight palate, lively and fresh, with excellent grip and structure, is one of those unusual Sauvignon Blancs which actually give the impression of needing time in bottle.
