The Details

Tasting Note This wine is bright lemon in colour with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of fresh lychee, passionfruit and hints of fresh herbs. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passionfruit flavours, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.
Treatment Made from grapes sourced principally from our own Opawa vineyard on Rapaura gravel soils, the fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the night and immediately pressed at the winery. A cool fermentation followed using an aromatic yeast, with a small portion fermented in large oak cuve’s to add a textural element to the wine. After a short period on yeast lees, the wine was clarified and filtered prior to bottling.

The Story

Meaning “Smoky River” in Maori, the Opawa River historically began in the current Opawa vineyard owned by Nautilus Estate of Marlborough. The riverbed gravels formed the stony soils, which absorb the sun’s warmth during the day and radiate it back onto the grapes at night, evolving the delicious aromas and flavours in these wines. Today the lower Opawa River is the habitat for various endangered and endemic New Zealand birdlife and Opawa wines are committed to preserving this wetland ecosystem and its inhabitants.
