Finalist - Winestate Wine of the Year


With great pleasure, we announce our multi Gold-medal-winning Awatere River Sauvignon Blanc 2022 has been named a finalist in the Winestate Magazine Wine of the Year Awards for 2022. This top 5 nomination is a fantastic achievement from the thousands of wines the magazine judges annually.

"Ripe fruit aromas of gooseberry, kaffir lime, peach and thyme. Full and juicy on the palate with pure, concentrated flavours, bright freshness and a long finish showing typical minerality. A vibrant wine showing finesse, elegance and sub-regional character with excellent weight".

Congratulations to our winemaking team on this fantastic achievement. These results truly reflect their dedication to nurturing our unique, terroir-expressive wines.
