Opawa Sauvignon Blanc
Origin: Marlborough, New Zealand
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Meaning “smoky river” in Maori, Opawa is a vineyard located on the old river bed of the historic Opawa River in Marlborough. The stony river gravels absorb the sun’s warmth during the day, radiating it back onto the grapes at night, evolving the delicious aromas and flavours in these wines.
Our grapes are picked in the cool of night, under the moonlight, to ensure these pristine flavours are perfectly preserved in our wines.
This wine is bright lemon colour with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of fresh lychee, passionfruit and hints of fresh herbs. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passionfruit flavours, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.
