The moment you step on Wairarapa soil your heart starts to beat to a calmer rhythm, time slows down enough for you to catch your breath, drink in the spectacular scenery that surrounds you and you feel your body start to relax. Their wines are made according to the Sustainable Winegrowers New Zealand practices. Multi award winning and great to be enjoyed with friends!
The Wairarapa generally produces small crops of intensely flavoured fruit. Matahiwi Estate work hard to introduce a range of flavours into the grapes as they ripen, for example, by leaf-plucking just the morning side of the canopy. They pick Sauvignon Blanc over differing ripeness periods to capture flavour profiles they want in the final wine.
This vibrant, aromatic wine has flavours of gooseberry and limes, with a lively finish. Fab to drink it with seafood and pasta dishes and delicious summer salads
