If Sauvignon Blanc is your thing, check this wine out. It is simply exqusite!
This Huia Sauvignon Blanc shows a fantastic aromatic intensity with bright floral notes. Elderflower, red bell pepper, and nettles lift the nose; the palate is fine, well balanced and shows good minerality.
Two estate vineyards provide grapes for the Huia Sauvignon Blanc. The stony sandy loam soils of the Huia vineyard offer a tropical fruit profile while the clay-based soils of our Winsome vineyard provide herbaceous notes, lime and minerality to the wine.
The grapes are pressed with the vineyards kept in separate vessels. A percentage of the juice undergoes natural fermentation in a mixture of neutral to new French oak, which adds further richness and complexity to the wine. The wine is fermented through to a dry style.
Because a small percentage of the wine was aged in a little neutral oak, it has the complexity and softness to be a delicious match with food. Seafood like fresh oysters, prawns, scallops, steamed mussels and marinated fish are a given but this little juicy number is a hit with seasonal asparagus and a wide variety of cheeses.
