Overview

A blend of 91% Sauvignon Blanc from Nelson and 9% from Waipara on the South Island. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a little residual sugar was retained to add a touch of richness. Strongly aromatic with a crisp vibrancy to the finish; it shows aromas of passion fruit, nectarine and lemongrass alongside other green herbs. Perfect with zingy flavoured shellfish and Thai food generally.

Wine Maker Feature

The Te Awa winery is nestled in the heart of the Gimblett Gravels wine growing region in Hawke’s Bay. The full Maori name given to the site is Te Awa o Te Atua which means ''River of God'', a reference to the mysterious subterranean streams over which the vineyards are situated.Their whimsical approach to exploration, creativity and imagination is embodied in their Left Field wines which go beyond the boundaries of the single estate. It is the birthplace of the unexpected, the weird and the wonderful. Te Awa’s vineyard soils were laid down by the Ngaruroro River which meandered through this part of the valley until a huge flood changed its course in 1867; these alluvial soils consistently produce high-quality fruit.The Hawke’s Bay region has a maritime climate, with hot, dry, north-westerly winds, low rainfall and a long growing season with an annual average of about 2,300 sunshine hours; this makes Hawke’s Bay one of the warmest areas in New Zealand.The winemaking team consists of Ant Mackenzie and Richard Painter. Ant’s career began over 20 years ago, with his passion taking him across the globe; before joining Te Awa, he was the Chief Winemaker at Spy Valley and the Framingham Wine Company both based in Marlborough. Richard has worked in Central Otago, Canterbury and Nelson; he has also worked in the USA, Oregon and Washington, where he fell in love with full-bodied red wines. Ant describes Hawke’s Bay as a brilliant place to practice the craft of winemaking, revealing, ‘at Te Awa we have all of the benefits of a premium single estate site, old vines and a functional modern winery beautifully positioned on the vineyard.’
