Description

The Vavasour family are synonymous with the Awatere Valley and Louis, son of Pete and Anna who created the infamous Vavasour winery, has now gone out on his own to head the team at Awatere River. The Awatere Valley is slightly cooler than the Wairau due to its closer proximity to the ocean, meaning the grapes hang out for longer to ripen, making them very flavourful. The stamp of Awatere Valley is to make bold, sustainable, vegan friendly wines using minimal intervention winemaking methods.

Smells

delicious aromas of creamed corn, popcorn and barbequed corn with lashings of butter. That’s a lot of corn, but just smell it and you will agree.

Tastes

Those same delicious corn flavours command, with enticing herbal; fennel and crushed thyme notes all interwoven in a creamy, oily palate which finishes with a clean and refreshing lemon zest. Made for ethically caught Marlborough seafood or white meats, and even vegetarian dishes. Drink now though 2025.
