Winemaker Notes

Elderflower, red bell pepper, and nettles lift the nose; the palate is fine, well balanced and shows good minerality.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Huia Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine showcases the best attributes of this grape from the Marlborough growing region. Its bright aromas and flavors of grapefruit peel and nectarine stay juicy and delicious on the palate. Pair it with stir-fried prawns in a Sauvignon Blanc reduction sauce accented with fresh herbs. (Tasted: September 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
