Story

“Two estate vineyards provide grapes for the Huia Sauvignon Blanc. The stony sandy loam soils of the Huia vineyard offer a tropical fruit profile while the clay-based soils of our Winsome vineyard provide herbaceous notes, lime and minerality to the wine.

Around ten percent of the juice undergoes natural fermentation in a mixture of neutral to new French oak. The wine fermented through to a dry style. Elderflower, red bell pepper, and nettles lift the nose; the palate is fine, well balanced and shows classical minerality.” More at HuiaVineyards
