Matahiwi Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2020
- Light, aromatic
Well, mofo, see, we love Matahiwi. They make great wine, standouts among Kiwis. We’d even pack some bottles for a holiday to Fiji. No doubt about it; they know how to please. A perfect pairing to food from the seas. It’s easy, to taste; the flavour’s plain to see. Classically varietal – all passionfruit and snow pea, zippy citrus freshness, bright, fun acidity. A single sip of this, you’ll be singing from the trees. On a hot summer’s day, it’s about all you need. Indeed.
Part of our Women in Wine Collection
This wine is part of our Women in Wine collection. We are committed to ALWAYS having wines available that are made by women. We already support so many women in the industry but we want to make this much more transparent and visible for our mofos. We want to make a real and lasting impact in an industry that is sadly still dominated by men. And this is the first step. Here’s to our Women in Wine!
Vineyard Manager: Karina Southey
Karina Southey is a native of the Wairarapa and spends her days managing Matahiwi’s epically beautiful vineyards.
“Delicately-scented sauvignon blanc with capsicum, blackcurrant bud, lime zest, green apple and a hint of saline, oyster-shell flavours. A tangy, mouth-watering wine with a crisp, drying and quite lengthy finish.”
Full price $25.00 from the producer.

Matahiwi Estate is another New Zealand wine success story. For such a small country, Kiwi's do an exceptional job on the world stage. Alastair Scott is a passionate wine man (aren't we all?), born and bred in the beautiful Wairarapa Valley on the north island. He dreamt of making world class wines. Back in the day (some 100 years pre-Alastair), an Italian wine scientist identified the Wairarapa Valley as ideal for growing grapes. Fast forward to today and Matahiwi Estate does the region proud with their stable of award-winning wines, while nurturing the land with sustainable practices. So Alastair’s dream came true, and he now spends his time spreading the very good word of Matahiwi wines around the world.
Maori for 'glistening waters', Wairarapa is a small region around Wellington, at the very bottom of New Zealand's north island. It includes the subregions of Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton. If the names Dry River, Martinborough Vineyards and Ata Rangi ring a bell, you probably need no further introduction. If they don't, it's time you were introduced to a diverse range of landscapes that produce a similarly varied range of scrumptious wines that Kiwis are rightly proud of.
