Matua, meaning “Head of the Family” is the first ever to produce Sauvignon in New Zealand.
A little different than most Sauvignon from here, this one comes from Hawke’s Bay on the Northern Island.
This favourite boasts classic regional flavours. Its fresh and clean and very expressive. Very light in colour, with a tinge of green in the hue. It finds the right balance of fruity sweetness and zesty acidity. The finish is semi-dry.
Definitely will be looking for this one again when the weather brightens and we can spend some time on the deck – munching crackers and cheese listening to stories of winter shenanigans.
