Wildsong is the exciting range from winemaker Rod McDonald and the Te Awanga Estate team. The range focuses on finely crafted wines that are 'Grown with respect, made with heart and packed with attitude' and has been a smash hit overseas so we're thrilled to have the range in store.
This 2022 sauv blanc is textural and rich with vibrant fruit flavours and soft acidity. A long, linear finish makes a second glass mandatory. Quality all the way here.
James Suckling writes "Tangy and fresh with lime, lemon and hints of green papaya. Medium body, crisp and fresh."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Varietal, fresh and inviting bouquet of peach and apple, layers of fresh and some dried herbs, hay and lemon. On the palate a salivating and refreshing texture with acidity and a light saline quality enhancing the flavours of fresh and some baked apple, peach and moments of tropical fruits."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's fabulously aromatic on the nose showing green rockmelon, feijoa, kiwifruit and lemon zest aromas, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering excellent fruit purity and vibrancy."
The winery writes "Fresh passionfruit, ripe peaches and a hint of lemon rind on the nose. Bright passionfruit and stonefruit flavours on the palate, nestle in with gooseberry and guava."
