ME by Matahiwi Estate Sauvignon Blanc2019

This crisply styled, refreshing wine has a wonderful combination of lime, passionfruit and gooseberry aromas with a hint of minerality – typical stylish Sauvignon Blanc! We love to drink it with seafood and pasta dishes and delicious summer salads. While this wine is ready to drink now, it can also be cellared for up to two years.

Vineyard

The fruit for this wine was grown in two Wairarapa vineyards with different soils, one on stony loam, the other a hillside clay. This variety helps to increase the complexity of the wine. The vines are relatively young and are cropped at low levels to give intensely flavoured grapes.

Winemaking

The focus in the winery is to capture the pure fruit flavours that come from the vineyard whilst adding complexity through our winemaking efforts to provide a multi-dimensional wine. This is achieved by tank fermenting the juice using yeasts that are able to ferment to low temperatures – preserving the essential fruit flavours.
