About

91

The 2014 The Supernatural has a beautiful, ripe Sauvignon Blanc nose of pink grapefruit, guava, ginger, honey drizzled pears and orange blossom. The palate delivers a lovely satiny texture and tons of citrus and ginger laced flavors with a lively acid backbone and very long finish. I look forward to seeing how this cellars!

Product Description:

"The Supernatural (the name refers to the estate's viticultural practices) is farmed organically, vinified naturally and estate grown by winemaker Hayden Penny, and Viticulturist Emma Tait-Morris. A rich, opulent, aromatic white, the Supernatural is made with grapes sourced exclusively from low-yielding, organically grown estate vineyards planted in 2003 and 2004. Hayden believes in minimum intervention: he only adds sulphur at bottling for freshness and to bring the wine to the shelves. The grapes are destemmed, 4-6 hours of skin contact then long, slow press. Natural fermentation followed by extended lees contact (around 9 months) in stainless steel. No fining, light filtration. The Supernatural reflects the sun-drenched south sea days Hawke’s Bay is famous for. The smoky and spicy notes are characteristic of the site, along with richness and texture encouraged with skin and lees contact. Forget what you know about this variety, The Supernatural is a uniquely complex creature." - Winery
