The Flying Winemaker Sauvignon Blanc is, in all essence of the word, lively. It's aromatically dynamic with bursts of gooseberry, white peach, green fig and a subtle grassiness - a tantalising bouquet that grants a captivating experience. Upon each sip, you’ll be greeted by a wine that is energetic and crisp with concentrated tropical flavours that lead to a long, vibrant and salivating acidity that is tightly wound and intensely structured.
A curation of younger vine parcels that are varietally expressive and able to sing the right notes of Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. We look for ripe and tropical flavours while flashing highlights of a mouth-watering salinity.
Our key to the success of this range is simplicity and honesty. We're not trying to reinvent the wheel, we're sticking with what works to make this wine taste awesome.
Winemaking without over-complicating the process is the way we produce this wine. We like to focus on varietal expression and regional identity. Our Sauvignon Blanc is true to the style of Wairarapa and is fermented as clarified juice post destemming and pressing. Low temperatures and steady sugar conversion to alcohol is all we look for here. Ideally, we see wine from grape to bottle over a short time frame of 8-10 months before hitting the market 12 months after harvest. We sterile filter and ensure freshness is kept at the highest level to promote early drinking.
Winemaking without borders while ultimately aiming to express the honest flavours of individual grape varietals. Each wine produced under this range is a benchmark example of grape, place, and maker.
With an ambitious and pioneering spirit, we thrive on discovering and expressing the finest terroir — getting the best from every grape with minimal intervention. The results are exceptional wines, crafted with passion and precision so you too can experience the journey, one sip at a time!
