    Oh baby! This fluffy, cute, adorable little number took out a Platinum Trophy (Best Sauvignon Blanc), Gold medal and a whopping 96/100 at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards!

    Made by Peter Yealands, they were totally stoked to land one the gong, the second Trophy in a row for this label.

    Think big, act small. You’ve gotta hand it to Peter Yealands, when it comes to sustainability and innovation the guy’s ahead of the game!

    Pete says “We’re creating great wines without messing with the environment” and that means being sustainable and eco-friendly in everything they do. From being a carboNZero certified winery to putting in the largest solar panel installation in NZ at his HQ in Marlborough.

    He even uses miniature sheep to graze between the rows of vines, the Babydoll sheep. At two feet tall these must be the world’s cutest lawnmowers! They’re not tall enough to reach the fruit (as hard as they try) but these fluffy little guys provide a year round lawn mowing and pest control service – plus a useful dollop of fertiliser!

    Cute (the sheep) and clever (Peter) – what a combo. Made in the classic Marlborough style with zesty, rich and fresh tropical fruit flavours with a refreshing finish. Pair it with fresh fish and seafood or a Thai salad.
