Maimai Sauvignon Blanc

Maimai Sauvignon BlancVariety: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Hawke’s Bay
Sub Region: Meeanee, Napier
Style: Dry
Vintage: 2014

Grown on our site on Brookfields Road and cropped at low levels we manage these
vines to ensure slow and complete ripening that maximizes the flavour profile. Only 2 km
from the Pacific Ocean this vineyard retains mild but constant heat during the ripening
period allowing the flavour and acid balance to develop naturally. The grapes are all
managed under a sustainable program.

Colour of light straw.

The wine has lifted aromas of green capsicum and dried herbs.

Vibrant and juicy showing bright acidity and a lingering crisp dry finish.

Our Sauvignon Blanc was harvested in March. The fruit was crushed and lightly pressed
into stainless steel tanks where it was fermented at low temperatures. Clean ripe and
vibrant flavours is our aim with Sauvignon Blanc and we handle it from the vineyard
through to the winery to ensure this is achieved.

Enjoy with . . . .
Pasta, vegetarian dishes, white meats, fish and salads.
