    2022 TWR Sauvignon Blanc

    • $33.00


    About the Wine:

    Our 2022 release shows distinctive Awatere characters of guava, white currant, and elderflower coupled with lovely ripe passionfruit & tropical notes and hints of basil and lime from the Wairau fruit. These follow through to the palate – which is fine and soft with loads of fleshy fruit balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. There is real fruit weight here and that is complimented by lovely texture from the time on lees and the barrel parcels – It is utterly delicious!


    94 Points: #10 of 63 in Marlborough Bob Campbell for The Real Review
    Smooth, seamless sauvignon with lemongrass, capsicum, lime, passionfruit and subtle mineral flavours. Refreshingly dry with a crisp, mouthwatering and lengthy finish. Refined and sophisticated wine. Drink 2022- 2026

    About the Vineyard:

    Te Whare Ra (TWR) is a small vineyard and winery located in the Marlborough sub- region of Renwick. The 11-hectare vineyard was first planted in 1979 and since 2003 has been owned by winemakers Anna and Jason Flowerday. Yields are kept low, the vineyard is managed with a combination of organic and biodynamic practices and the fruit is handpicked and hand-sorted. The wines are made with minimal intervention in a small winery which has been specifically set up for small-batch winemaking. The aromatic wines have carved out a reputation for TWR as a member of New Zealand’s elite, while the improbably good Syrah and Pinot Noir are opening people’s eyes to Marlborough’s potential for red wines of distinction. In recognition of the evolution of their cherished patch of Marlborough dirt, the Flowerdays decided in 2014 to label their single-site wines with their vineyard designation number from BioGro New Zealand. This number represents all their hard work over more than a decade to achieve organic certification. The SV5182 wines represent all that they feel is important in their craft: provenance, organic farming and authentic, world-class wines from Marlborough.
