Waimea Sauvignon Gris 2023

FOUR STARS | Cuisine Magazine
91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This really is an exquisite example of sauvignon gris that stays true to its varietal characteristics. Although it sounds like a blend of sauvignon blanc and pinot gris, it is actually its own grape variety that was discovered as a clonal mutation of sauvignon blanc. The punchy aromatics really shine through thanks to the fruit being fermented with aromatic yeast strains and matured on its lees for three months, but without the exuberance that NZ Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. A great choice if you are after something a bit different!

Tasting Notes

Cuisine Magazine writes "Pale in the glass with a crunchy green herbal aroma and plenty of thiol influence. The palate is mid weighted with nice intensity of flavour and fruit brightness. The acid is fresh and well balanced through to the crisp, refreshing finish."

Cameron Douglas MS writes "This wine offers an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Blanc with aroma sand flavours of white fleshed fruits, crunchy apple and citrus of lemon and grapefruit then moments of tropical fruit. Crisp, firm and dry with persistent flavours and a bright crunchy texture."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Bright and fresh, the inviting bouquet shows green apple, grapefruit, apricot and fresh herb notes, leading to a flavoursome palate that's vibrant and tasty. Well framed by crisp acidity, finishing long and lively."

The winery writes "White peach, elderflower, nectarine and lavender flower aromas. A soft entry before revealing a rich mid palate of succulent passionfruit and quince flavours with a silky texture and slight waxiness note to finish minerality balance with a crisp, elegant long finish."
