Get to know: Hawksdrift, Oaked Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Note

This has a full, and vibrant nose of ripe gooseberry fruit mixed with greengages, spicy herbs and nutty aromas. The fruit on the palate is vibrant and oak is well-integrated and balanced. Fresh and layered with green stonefruit and nutty flavours, leading to a lively, mouthwatering, dry finish.

Try this with a roast chicken.

Producer Info

Hawksdrift is a family owned vineyard, located in the Dillons Point region of Marlborough. Murray and Robyn Butt were among the first to pioneer growing grapes in this area. Before they took their first steps into viticulture, in 1998, they farmed the land conventionally, growing crops and raising livestock. The Dillons Point area is in the East of Marlborough, near the sea coast. It lies close to sea level and has deep, fertile soils. Shelter from the Wither Hills range, contributes to a long, hot ripening season, meaning, the fruit is left to ripen when other, cooler areas have shut down. This long hang time develops fully ripened summer flavours in the fruit. The wines are all hand crafted and fermented and aged in old French Oak barrels.
