FAIRHALL DOWNS SINGLE VINEYARD SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016
Vibrant fruit flavours that veer into citrus. Cool fermentation has revealed trademark fruit purity and oh so crisp and clean Sauvignon Blanc finish.

5 Stars (94 Points) Sam Kim "From their estate vineyard in the Brancott Valley, this is a gorgeous sauvignon filled with ripe passionfruit, feijoa, nectarine and lime zest flavours. It is concentrated and succulent on the palate, and delivers waves of delicious flavours, wonderfully supported by fine texture and bright acidity. The wine is intense and punchy, while remaining balanced and friendly. At its best: now to 2019."
FAIRHALL DOWNS SINGLE VINEYARD PINOT GRIS 2016
Intensely floral aromas yield to nashi pear. Nectarine and spice flavours are layered with subtle oak and the extra complexity a partial barrel ferment brings.
Silver Medal Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2016
5 Stars (93 Points) Sam Kim "It is instantly appealing on the nose, displaying nectarine, poached pear and apple blossom characters with subtle spicy complexity. The palate is concentrated and impressively weighted, and delivers fabulous silky mouthfeel and texture, brilliantly enhanced by refreshing acidity. A very delicious offering from their single vineyard in the Brancott Valley. At its best: now to 2019."
PREVIOUS VINTAGE: FAIRHALL DOWNS SINGLE VINEYARD SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015 (SOLD OUT)
Our Sauvignon Blanc is a brilliant pale straw green colour with a fresh vibrant bouquet of citrus and tree fruits, mango passion tropical and fresh herb, a whisper of white florals and stony minerality. On the palate – crisp, dry, firm and fresh with plenty of backbone and flavours of fresh fruit, herbs and hint of crunchy bell-pepper.
