Producer Description

First settling in New Zealand in 1887, the Vavasour family pioneered commercial grape growing and winemaking. Drawing on over a century of their family’s winemaking tradition, Peter and Anna Vavasour created the Awatere River Wine Company in 1986 by planting the first vines in the Dashwood district of Marlborough. Made in limited quantities, Awatere River by Louis Vavasour (Peter and Anna’s son) is a collection of award winning, premium quality wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the alluvial river flats on which they were grown. Opting not to trade on the family name, but to focus on everything he loves most about the region, Louis’ Pinot Gris has an exceptional length, structure and complexity.

Tasting note

It has been crafted carefully for greater length while retaining true Awatere Valley finesse and elegance. With distinctive herbaceous aromatics and fresh acidity, the palate shows stonefruit, passionfruit and citrus with a hint of minerality.

Jancis Robinson (Purple Pages

No oak. Blackcurrant leaf, tomato stalk – very good definition here, and there is something Bordelais about it. Dry, powdery texture and finishes with lovely fennel notes. Nice to see Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc achieving complexity beyond the usual boundaries. GV (RH) Points: 17. Date Tasted: 16/01/2019
