The ancient Otuwhero River gives our wine its name, and is fed by melting snows from surrounding mountain peaks. Our wild, wind-swept Otu whero Estate is set at the edge of the Southern Pacific Ocean. The Estate is remote coastal and rugged terroir – this produces distinctively bold, ripe fruit flavors, and ex quisitely expressive wines. The soil found here in the Awatere Valley is alluvial gravels that rise through our silt and clay soils – delivering bold minerality, intensity and ripe opulence to our wines.
Bold and intensely vibrant Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – distinctively Awatere Valley. This wine is sourced solely from our finest steeply terraced north-facing blocks on the OTU wine estate. The 2021 vintage may be considered one of the finest in recent memory, although crops were very low. Ideal conditions during ripening, followed by dry, warm weather led to rich, ripe grapes with excellent acid balance. To ensure added texture and depth, after fermentation, the wine was kept on light lees for three months until bottling.
