Clearwater Cove Sauvignon Blanc

Along the length of North and South Islands, the cool clear waters of the Pacific Ocean carve deep natural coves into the landscape.
Intriguing for its unrivalled tranquillity, this spectacular eastern coastline of New Zealand is also renowned for its exceptional wines.
In these beautiful, but harsh, conditions the vines struggle for survival, producing low yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavours.
Parcels from the Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley together combine to create a wine brimming with varietal character, balance and elegance.
