Vibrant, high energy sauvignon with gooseberry, green capsicum, lime zest and lemon blossom flavours. Assertive acidity helps drive a lengthy drying finish. Great with freshly shucked oysters. 18 AUG 2023

To make this wine, we haven't used classic fining agents such as fish, milk, or egg extracts and only minimal additives.
This means our Sauvignon Blanc is very natural and vegan friendly. In fact, it is certified by the New Zealand Vegetarian Society.
Our 20th year of growing grapes at Blackenbrook Vineyard!
Mother Nature gave us beautiful spring weather for flowering and pollination, setting us up for a good crop.
Summer was quite wet and the vines grew at a crazy pace. We kept mowing, trimming and leaf-plucking the fruit zone but it was a real struggle to stay on top of the phenomenal growth.
Going into harvest the fruit was clean but extremely fragile – and so were our nerves. But two weeks of stunning autumn weather was all we needed to hand-pick our biggest crop ever with beautiful ripeness and flavours – a challenging season with a happy ending.
