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

classic Awatere Savvy aromas of crushed, minted peas, gooseberries and fresh raw sweetcorn.

Tastes

forward juicy fruit with those same crushed, minted pea flavours, lemon zest and passionfruit all tightly woven by the grapefruit, and limey acid finish. Good texture gives a long lingering aftertaste. Perfect with ethically caught Marlborough seafood. Drinking now.
