Description

  • Dry style
  • Passionfruit & lime
  • Stonefruit
  • Ripe finish

"Power and intensity with a core of pure, ripe white fleshed fruits, citrus and apple with a wet stone and fresh green herb complexity. Flavours of lemon flesh and apple, pineapple and fresh basil, grapefruit, pith and fruit spice. Refreshing, crisp, silky and salivating textures lead to a long finish. An excellent example that ticks all the boxes of excellent vintage and faultless winemaking. Drinking best from purchase and through 2025+" Cameron Douglas MS, Jul 2021

Bright straw in colour, this classy sauvignon blanc has explosive aromatics of passionfruit, white peach, gooseberry and lime juice that mingle with subtle notes of caper berries and flint. Dry and saline, persistent flavours of white currant, golden kiwi fruit and stone fruit are revealed alongside bright, mouth-watering acidity. The distinctive palate has a gravelly texture and a ripe, pure finish.

The name Convergence signifies the coming together of flavours from our Wairau and Awatere valley vineyards.

Crops were significantly reduced due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this lead to a very early harvest. The resulting fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. Harvested early morning and lightly pressed, the juice was fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and distinctive varietal character. A small portion was fermented in concrete egg tank and clay amphora to add a grainy texture to the palate. The wine was then aged on light yeast lees for three months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel.

ABV: 13%
