Bendigo Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2020
- Light, aromatic
- Central Otago
Bendigo Hills is a project from the esteemed mofo fave, Rock Ferry, who are based in Central Otago, but also source organically farmed grapes in Marlborough. If there’s one thing Marlborough does well, it’s sauvignon blanc. And let me tell you, Bendigo Hills have outdone themselves here. Elegance and freshness are the first two things that come to mind, a slightly herbaceous nose, classic gooseberry and passionfruit dance on the tongue and racy citrus ties the wine together to create a seemingly perfect drop.
“Pristine and elegantly lifted, the bouquet shows grapefruit, crunchy apple, lemon zest and fresh herb notes, leading to a vibrant palate delivering terrific fruit power and persistency. It's lively and flavoursome with a lengthy crisp finish. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2024.”
Full price $25.00 from the producer.

Central Otago is the New Zealand's highest and the world's most southerly wine region at latitude 45°S. It has cold winters, hot summers, cool nights and low rainfall, and is ideally suited to Pinot Noir, which covers 80% of plantings. The rest is mainly planted to Chardonnay, with smatterings of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Expect character and intensity as the hallmarks of this marginal region.
