At Waipara West, they do not use insecticides, residual herbicides, or artificial fertilizer. Only hand-picked grapes from their own vineyards are used for their wines. Described as more European in style than the New World.

Country of Origin: New Zealand
Type of bottle: 750 ml bottle
Alcohol content: 13.5 vol.
Residual Sugar: 1.60 g/l
Tasting Notes: Displays ripe tropical gooseberry aromas with hints of green capsicum on the nose, peach flavors on the palate with a well-rounded finish. A wine that seems both rich and bone dry at the same time.
Food Suggestion: Sauvignon Blanc’s zing is a delightful complement to the fresh flavors of seafood, shellfish, and whitefish. On its own a mouth-watering aperitif.
