2021 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The New Zealand falcon has been a revered guardian of our vineyards for decades. At our Riverview Vineyard on the banks of the Ngaruroro River in Hawkes Bay, we housed and trained a male and female falcon whose seemingly effortless grace held us rapt for many years.
The only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand helps us with our natural sustainability program by managing pest control operations. To this day we still have a resident falcon who often visits the feeding station we’ve set up as a token of appreciation to this flying celebrity who also graces our country’s $20 bill.
It’s worth noting that just one of these bills will get you a nice bottle of Falconhead to take home…

Tasting Notes

Ripe scented tropical fruit and herbal aromatics lead into a salivating saline palate, with lively acid surrounding a core of fresh citrus fruit flavours.

Wine Review

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine is from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in our Kuranui vineyard in the Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough. The grapes for this wine were harvested in our Marlborough vineyard and transported to a contract facility for dejuicing and settling. The clear juice was transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery where it was fermented in stainless steel tanks at around 14°C using Zymaflore X5 and Delta yeast strains. Following fermentation the wine was blended, protein stabilised, cold stabilised and fined.
