First established in 1968, Matawhero wines defied convention and made wines of boutique standing and international acclaim and in doing so, changed the face of New Zealand winemaking forever. Since its first vintage in 1975, Matawhero has produced many excellent and often adventurous wines.
This crisp & zingy sauvignon blanc is packed full of gooseberry and bright citrus aromas, and when you take a sip there is delicious citrus and herbaceous notes, with a lovely crisp acidity ? just an explosion of flavour.
The wine displays guava, passionfruit and gooseberry flavours underscored by nettle and chamomile floral notes; These same fruit characters introduce the wine onto the palate, moving into a textured mid-palate and supple acidity the wine finishes with a touch of nettle.
Our flagship wine, this is a fruit-driven and expressive Sauvignon Blanc, grown from premium vineyards across the world-famous Marlborough region of New Zealand. Perfect with seafood, salads, and goat cheese.
