by Hancocks 0 orders



Melon and subtle passionfruit. This lovely Sauvignon finishes with a richness and fullness seen only in good Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Tim & Natalya Egan’s vineyard in Gisborne, where this Sauvignon
Blanc was grown using dry farming techniques. Traditionally these are one of the first Sauvignon Blanc vines in the
region to be harvested each year. The fruit was harvested in excellent condition with a great flavour, sugar and acid



About Matawhero Wines

The Matawhero journey started with two New Zealand wine pioneers from the 1960s. Today the story continues around the drive and determination of Kirsten and Richard Searle. who purchased the Matawhero vineyard and winery in Gisborne from Denis in 2008. They are the trusted Kaitiaki (guardians) of Matawhero and continue to develop the iconic winery and share the distinctive wine styles of the Tairawhiti-Gisborne region. They produce famous New Zealand Chardonnay and other wines including aromatics like Gewürztraminer and lovely Reds.

The Matawhero winery and vineyards in Gisborne were purchased by Kirsten and Richard Searle in 2008 from New Zealand pioneer winemaker Denis Irwin. After a rigorous process on Denis’s part to ensure that the baton was being passed to someone equally as passionate about wine and the region as he was, he willed us on and the hard work began replanting and revitalising the historic winery.

Their love of the region runs deep, Richard grew up here and with a family history of growing grapes they wouldn’t want to be doing anything else!
