Located in a suburb of Auckland, this family-owned winery has been crafting award winning fine wines for three decades. The winery was founded in 1980 by Andrew and Cynthia Hendry and has since grown into a top class winery with a strong international presence. Their Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is based on fruit sourced from the Dillons Point and Brancott Valley sub-regions from parcels chosen to provide a range of flavors and aromas to represent what they believe to be "essence of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc." The wine delivers a melange of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine aromas backed with hints of herbaceousness; on the palate it shows an exceptional weight of flavor with great richness and texture and a long finish.
