2015 Mahana Gravity Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Mahana Gravity Sauvignon Blanc

Nelson, New Zealand


Winemaker: Michael Glover
Vineyard/Year: Mahana / 2015
Being poured at: Bellotta

Those who know the history of Michael Glover will know not to expect just another New Zealand Sauvignon – just as well as this is something very different.

Mahana actually draws from two estate owned vineyards or terroirs – one in Moutere (where all the Pinot comes from) and one in the nearby Waimea area of Nelson (Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, etc).

Tasting notes

The wine has a pale straw colour. The nose is quite savoury - certainly not the pungently fruit Marlborough style. This is a lot more restrained and perhaps a bit more 'old world' in character. It is quite gravelly, chalky and mineral driven on the nose.
