Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Region: New Zealand / Martinborough

The grapes are partially hand harvested from the estate-owned Te Muna Road Vineyard.

The wine ages on its lees in old and new French oak barrels before being fined, filtered and bottled.

points of distinction

  • The higher-elevation Te Muna Road Vineyard is harvested about a week later than sites in nearby Martinborough. The grapes have greater freshness and acidity.
  • The vineyard's lower terrace has stony soils with limestone, excellent for Sauvignon Blanc.
  • White wines from this vineyard show a distinctive fine, subtle and elegant texture.

I am fortunate to lead an extraordinary group of people who want to be part of creating something truly magnificent that successive generations can admire and enjoy for years to come. I love our great estates and feel a strong connection to their complexities and subtleties.
