Marlborough, New Zealand
Wanderlust’s own organic baby
When Richard spent a month in in New Zealand in 2016, he met a grape grower he fell in love with. Alan is a manure man: the manure recipe he developed over the last 20 years is at the basis of his organic practices, allowing him to keep a super-healthy vineyard without chemical spraying and to harvest outstanding quality fruit. Alan and Richard shook hands there and then. Together with a young dynamic winemaker they’ve crafted the small batch Sauvignon Blanc ‘HiaHia’, the Maori word for lust and desire. ‘HiaHia’ is a floral, delicate and light pour, with flavours of elderflower, crisp apple, pear, eucalyptus and gooseberry.
