Winery Notes:
Matahiwi Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2017

This vibrant, aromatic wine has flavours of gooseberry and limes, with a lively finish. We love to drink it with seafood and pasta dishes and delicious summer salads. No cellaring required.

We have several different blocks of Sauvignon Blanc where we use various canopy management techniques to provide us with a range of complex flavours from the grapes.

The focus in the winery is to capture the pure fruit flavours that come from the vineyard whilst adding complexity through our winemaking efforts to provide a multi-dimensional wine. This is achieved by tank fermenting the juice using yeasts that are able to ferment to low temperatures ? preserving the essential fruit flavours.
