Around the cool, shallow waters of New Zealand live the most unique and beautiful species of abalone (Paua). These native creatures have been revered by ancient cultures and in modern times alike for their brilliant iridescent shells, considered to have the widest color spectrum of any abalone in the world. They can produce a stunning pearl, which is a true rarity and treasure of New Zealand.
Sea Pearl Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, named after this New Zealand treasure, are crafted from fruit grown in the southern Wairau River valleys of Marlborough, within close proximity to the sea. We take a purist approach to winemaking, making certain the vineyards are in perfect condition and harvesting at optimum ripeness, letting the fruit express itself with minimal intervention in the winery.
