Kahurangi means a treasured possession, precious jewel, pale greenstone and/or blue sky. Trout Valley wines are sourced from superior vineyards along the Nelson, each with their own characteristic style of fruit. Skillfully vinified and artfully finished, they ensure consistent quality from vintage to vintage. Fruit is harvested from vines on the Waimea Plains, planted to Moutere clay and free draining, stony alluvial soils. Sauvignon Blanc grown here achieves classic varietal flavours and bright, virile bouquets. Bunches are crushed, inoculated to choice yeasts and treated to a cool, temperature controlled vinification to preserve freshness and retain essential fruit characters.
Clear greenish hues. Herbaceous and tropical fruit aromas on the nose. Scents of lychee and grass congeal with currants, lemon and snow pea. The palate is dominated by gooseberry, grapefruit and citrus flavours over fine textures and mouthfeel. This distinctively Nelson influenced Sauvignon Blanc culminates in a clean and lingering, well balanced, satisfying finish.
