Renowned sailors, the Butterworths are the new custodians of Julicher Vineyard planted in the iconic soils of Te Muna. The J-Knot on every bottle, the strongest knot you can tie, is a tribute to our vineyard’s founder, Wim Julicher.

Blackcurrant leaf, pineapple, and mandarin pith combine with the vanilla bean of the French oak on the nose. The palate showcases the Te Muna racy acid line, with a richness from the wine’s time on full lees.

Colour: A rich golden hue.

Aroma: Grapefruit pith, freshly cut pineapple, crushed herb jump from the glass, accented by exotic cardamom from the mortar and pestle.

Palate: The Te Muna Valley acidity is evident immediately, followed by the combination of mouth filling richness from the time on lees and the phenolic edge providing length to the wine.

93 Points, Bob Campbell MW

"Attractively aromatic sauvignon blanc with tropical fruit, citrus fruit, lime, orange blossom, ginger and a hint of spicy oak. Quite a rich, textural wine with a peppery texture and lingering finish."
