After supplying grapes for other producers (including Cloudy Bay) in 1991 they decided to release their own wines under their own label.
Home to some of the oldest vines in Marlborough and planted by hand, this is a hands on ‘family’ vineyard with 11 members of the Rose family involved in working the 10 estate vineyards they now own. Wairau River maintains total commitment to quality by carefully managing these vineyards to keep yields low and produce quintessential wines that reflect this prominent region.
Marlborough is well known for its Sauvignon Blanc but at Wairau they are constantly looking to expand their range of vines planted and this includes Albarino and Viognier, both from estate vineyards.
The reserve Sauvignon is from the Longbend vineyard on the banks of the Opawa River, this single vineyard wine has an intense nose of citrus and passionfruit with vibrant gooseberry, gunflint and mineral nuances. A fresh tropical palate is finely textured and seamless from extended lees contact creating a complex finish and creamy texture.
