Hãhã Sauvignon Blanc
A powerfully expressive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that is juicy and flavoursome, offering layers of gorgeous tropical and citrus fruits and a thirst-quenching finish.
In Maori, Hãhã means savoury and luscious.
Selected parcels of grapes are sourced from the Awatere and Wairau Valleys in Marlborough. They are gently pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruit’s purity and varietal character.
The 2022 vintage provided the warmest weather on record in New Zealand. This along with favourable rain post flowering set up a fantastic fruit crop – an early and compact harvest produced fabulous wines that rival the last two years vintages with well-balanced flavour and acidity.
Appealing and aromatic bouquet of passionfruit and grapefruit. Its fruity crispness is based on a zesty palate of melon, lime and more passionfruit with herbal notes and a long finish with just 0.9gm of residual sugar.
Match with seafood, chicken dishes and light salads.
About the Producer
Haha Wine Co. Ltd
Hãhã Wine started when three families who were already involved in exporting apples, meat and seafood, had a chat about adding wine into the mix. Hãhã (a Māori word meaning to catch your breath) was launched in 2011 and based in Havelock North, Hawke’s Bay – with vineyards in Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough.
Hãhã are fully committed to an environmentally responsible approach. All their vineyards, wineries and bottling facilities – based in the famous regions of Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay – are certified as 100% sustainable by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand™ (SWNZ).
New Zealand was the first wine industry to establish a national sustainability programme. SWNZ started as an industry initiative in 1994 and then was introduced commercially to the whole industry in 1995. Nearly thirty years later, SWNZ is still widely recognised as a world-leading in its approach.
Hãhã now have a team of talented viticulturists and expert winemakers. Over the 10 years of their existence they have achieved many accolades and were named “Most Innovative Wine Company” (Winetech Magazine 2015).
