Background:
Matahiwi is sheltered by the Tararuas mountain range and enjoys a long and dry growing season with balmy warm days and pleasantly cool nights. The climate and the exposed stony sub-soils make the area ideal for growing grapes.

Tasting notes:
Light yellow/green, with an inviting, freshly scented, honeyed bouquet, it is delicious young, with youthful citrus-fruit, peach and slight apricot flavours, abundant sweetness (125 grams/litre of residual sugar), fresh acidity, and lovely vibrancy and depth
