Waimea Estate is one of the oldest in New Zealand, with 140 Hectares of sustainable vineyards. It’s also family owned.
The Estates award-winning wines are vibrant, and fruit-focused.
The nose is fresh with open and broad aromas of cut grass, green stone fruits, gooseberries and green apples. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, softly rich and luscious flavours of gooseberries, cut grass and green capsicums fill the mouth. The wine is soft and smooth-textured with gentle structure and brisk, lacy underlying acidity providing good liveliness and energy. Aromatic floral, herbal and passion fruit elements emerge and are carried to a long, soft, lingering finish. This is a soft, luscious and broad, mouth filling Sauvignon Gris with a smooth flow and fresh acid drive.
