About This Wine...
Clyde and Nigel Sowman’s 17 Hectare vineyard is located on the Wairau Valley plains, an ancient dry river bed which has created a prime growing area for great wines, particularly intense aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. Labour intensive vineyard methods produce consistent, exceptional fruit quality; and the use of traditional winemaking techniques and attention to preserving delicate flavours result in expressive and balanced wines.
