2020 Limited Release

Every vintage we drag our beautiful minds back into the heart of our premium blocks and get all creative. It's a passion of ours to throw down the gauntlet every year and come up with something truly unique. Not to be confused with our 2019 limited release Waihopai (a Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Gris and Gewurztraminer blend), our 2020 is just a little bit different. Comprised of Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner & Riesling, you're gonna get a lot of floral on the nose and fresh mango in the mouth as well as an out of this world texture you won't get with any other vino.

This is definitely one of rockstar drops - what you will get is white florals, lychee, spice and fresh mango. This is the perfect wine to sample with a cheese and meat platter, or the more obvious conterpart: Asian spices or smoky BBQ. We cannot reccomend the Waihopai 2020 experience enough.

Expert Opinion

94 Points (5 Stars)

"It’s fresh and inviting on the nose showing yellow peach, mango, fig and floral aromas. The palate is equally attractive with juicy fruit intensity and fleshy texture, leading to a lingering refreshing finish. Wonderfully harmonious and delectably expressed. A blend of Gewurztraminer, Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. At its best: now to 2025."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit


Hand harvested in small ripe parcels, each variety was gently crushed and allowed to naturally evolve. The Gruner Veltliner and Riesling batches were both fermented in new Acacia puncheons and then kept on the original Gewurztraminer yeast lees enhancing palate weight and giving the wine a fleshy texture, leading to a super lingering finish.

The limited release project pays homage to this beautiful part of the world and involves the philosophy of making the best white blend possible each vintage, which means the blend will never be the same as before.
