Lake Hayes wines reflect the land they’re grown on, with a style of winemaking that allows the fruit to express itself from vintage to vintage.
The grapes for Lake Hayes wines come from some of the best growing areas in Central Otago.
Lake Hayes wines are made in an early drinking style with a fresh, fruity appeal. They are young and lively, yet balanced and sophisticated.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were harvested and then pressed with both the free run juice and harder pressings combined so to capture all the phenolics. The juice was fermented cool, using a selected yeast that specifically expresses vibrant varietal characteristics. The wine was then matured on light, fluffy lees until bottling
WINE STYLE: Displaying purity early in its life, this wine is an instantly enticing Sauvignon Blanc made to drink in its youth, while crisp and fresh flavours are on show.
TASTING NOTES: Vibrant flavours of tropical fruits and zesty citrus. Precise acidity balanced with some natural fruit sweetness.
