Description

The story behind the Jealous Sisters range comes from local Maori legend of beautiful twin sisters Retutai and Tangimoana who lived on the stony banks of the Ruamahanga River. A handsome local warrior named Rautoroa heard of their beauty and came bearing gifts. Their hearts went out to him and soon the sisters became jealous of each other. Tangimoana cruelly tricked her sister and married Rautoroa. Heartbroken, Retutai climbed up into the mountain mists and was never seen again The grapes were grown at the Boyd, Cliffs and Dakin’s Road blocks. The vines are all trained with 3-cane VSP trellis systems to allow sufficient sunlight penetration and air movement through the canopy. After several years of careful management these vines practically self regulate, giving an optimal balance of crop size and ripened fruit. We used a combination of hand picking and machine harvesting depending on the site, and processed the fruit with care to maximise quality and site expression A typical Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc nose of Granny Smith apples, green capsicum and lemonade . There is a citrus note of lemon peel that complements the mineral undertones and length of the palate. The wine is crisp and fresh with a restrained elegance.
