2021 Limited Release

Every third album is a great one. From The Smiths' The Queen Is Dead, to Primal Scream's Screamadelica; from The Clash's London Calling to The Verve's Urban Hymns, you can guarantee that every great artist has blown minds with their post sophomore effort.

The same could be true for winemaking, as we release the third in the series of our Uber popular Waihopai series. Always a carefully blended phenomenon of epic distinction, this year we've brought together two of our greats from the 2021 vintage: a blend of 70% Gruner Veltliner and 30% Riesling.

We've been working on this concept now for three years, and we promise this beautiful baby will not disappoint.

THE WAIHOPAI LEGACY CONTINUES

The name originated from the first vintage in 2019 and our Waihopai Valley vineyard, which has an amazing variety of high-quality fruit in smaller volumes. Pushing boundaries, the concept has now expanded and is morphed into a philosophy of trying to achieve a special “blended” wine that is completely different each vintage; produced from any subregion within Marlborough.

Expert Opinion

5 Stars (94 Points)

"It’s gorgeously ripe and fragrant on the nose showing golden peach, rockmelon, fig and lemon peel charac"ters with a lovely floral overtone, leading to a succulent palate offering supple texture and juicy fruit intensity, beautifully framed by refreshing acidity. Harmonious and persistent. A blend of 70% Gruner Veltliner and 30% Riesling.

91/100 (Top Value)

"An interesting blend of two compatible grape varieties. Moderately flavoursome white in a medium-dry style (closer to dry than medium). Lime, citrus, white flowers and a suggestion of oyster-shell. Good value at this price."

Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review

Winemaking

Harvested in small ripe parcels from our Fareham Lane Vineyard, each variety was gently crushed and allowed to naturally evolve in Acacia puncheons on their own yeast lees. The sur lie maturation lasted approximately eight months; this enhanced palate weight and offering supple texture, leading to a super tasty finish. The final blend was decided after careful consideration resulting in 70% Grüner Veltliner & 30% Riesling.

This delicious wine was bottled on the 22nd of December 2021.
