Reviews & Awards

5 Stars - The Wine Writer 2020

By Angie Atkinson

The Mt Arthur reserve series showcases the Kahurangi Estate’s premium wines. Sauvignon Blanc from two vineyards, one in the Moutere Hills and one in the Kina Peninsula, are used the production of this wine. Fermented in French oak barriques and puncheons and then aged in those vessels for over ten months.

This wine is like your favourite winter jumper, soft, warm, and comforting. Complex but mellow aromas of stone fruit, oak, vanilla, and warm, roasted apple with undertones of mandarin on the nose. A medium bodied wine with a creamy texture, fresh pineapple, white peach, and spice are found on the palate with mouth watering acidity and a long citrus driven finish. Drink on its own or with food, just make sure you drink it!

4.5 Star - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2020

By Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

It's attractively fruited and elegantly complex on the nose showing grapefruit, Gala apple, lime zest and subtle oatmeal characters, leading to a succulent palate that's both vibrant and generous, finishing long and lively.
