    High flying Marlborough Sauvy at a rock bottom price! Falconhead Sauvignon Blanc 2019 has been circling the NZ wine show circuit lately and it didn’t miss the target – swooping in with two Gold medals!

    Gold at the NZ Wine of the Year Awards (the official wine show of the NZ wine industry, formerly known as the Air NZ Wine Awards) and Gold at the Marlborough Wine Show. Double Gold, 100% Marlborough Sauvy at this low, low price? Bargain. Killer deal. Call it what you want, this off the scales bang for buck Sauvy.

    Named after the New Zealand falcon. Endangered NZ bird of prey, star of the $20 bill and occasional visitor to the vineyard!

    Falconhead is a range produced by the crew that formerly owned Morton Estate. You might catch the odd one flying around their vineyards or stopping for a bite to eat at one of their vineyard feeding stations. After all, not only does the falcon look mighty impressive at up to 200 kilometres per hour, it also plays a key role in pest control for the vineyard!

    This is a delicious mouthful of lush, tropical fruit flavours with a refreshing, long finish. Not a style that over does it with the zingy, acidity (which we definitely prefer) – we reckon at this killer price the Falconhead might just be your go-to Sauvy for summer.
