Winemaker Frank Manifold is steadily making a name for both himself and for Mount Brown, with the estate Pinot Noir winning a great review in Decanter in 2016.
Their sauvignon has intense passion fruit and ripe tropical fruits on the nose. Pineapple and exotic fruit flavours backed up by a lemon-lime minerality lead this fine, well-balanced wine to a palate of great depth and flavour with a dry citrus finish.
New Zealander still white wine from Waipara New Zealand, made with Sauvignon Blanc.
Lying in the foothills of Mount Brown in Waipara Valley this abandoned wine estate was only rediscovered ten years ago and it is something of a success story. Waipara has a greater variation in temperature between night and day than more northerly Marlborough, yields are much lower, and this valley is fast establishing a reputation for quality. Aromatics such as Pinot Gris, and also Pinot Noir, are perfectly suited to Mount Brown’s small sheltered stony site and wine making here is of a very high order. View our selection.
