Winemakers Notes

Harrier Ridge wines are only produced in seasons when the winemaker believe that the grapes have reach there optimum maturity and flavour intensity. The wines have their already complex characteristics then enhanced as they are carefully guided through the winery.

Estate grown fruit with wonderful concentrated flavours was produced in the 2016 vintage at our Mangatahi vineyard.  Our Sauvignon Blanc is a vibrant wine with crisp flavours enhanced by barrel fermentation and aging sur lie.  The wine shows spectacular complexity and length.

Colour

Mid straw yellow with a green tint.

Bouquet

A delightful blend of papaya and peach characters, barrel and fermentation aromas. Layers of passionfruit, vanilla and toasty oak aromas indicate the depth of wine to come.

Palate

An array of passionfruit, guava, tropical fruit, toast and butterscotch leads to a lingering finish. Partial malolactic fermentation provides a lactic character to the acid balance in this wine.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoyable now, this wine can benefit from further cellaring for a moderate period of time.

Composition

100% sauvignon Blanc

Oenological Treatment

Hand harvested fruit was cool fermented in French Oak barrels to emphasise its fruit characters. The wine was then given extended lees contact to increase complexity.
