Wine maker notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc pushes the boundaries of the typical New Zealand flavor profile. By highlighting decadent tropical flavors, toning down the grassiness and bringing a creamy mid-palate all the way through to a crisp finish with bright minerality, we have set a new precedence for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The majority of the Sauvignon Blanc is planted on the most northern part of the vineyard which is cooler and more suited to this variety. All of our Sauvignon Blanc is hand-thinned and machine harvested before it is pressed into juice on site. The planted clones are a mix of University of California Davis (UCD) 1 and Mass selection (MS) on a mix of 101-14, 3309 and Schwarzmann rootstock, with a quarter of the vines Bordeaux clones BDX 316 and BDX 317, on Riparia Gloire rootstock. The Bordeaux clones tend to give a definite lift to Sauvignon Blanc flavors, with less cut grass and more tropical flavours providing a more artisan style, balanced, elegant wine which compliments a range of foods.

Producer
Scholar Entrepreneur, and New Zealand native David Teece, and his wife Leigh, believe his homeland “produces some of the best products in the world and aficionados everywhere should have a chance to experience them.” Mt. Beautiful Wines from North Canterbury reflects their passion for New Zealand. By producing elegant, certified-sustainable, estate-grown wines, David and Leigh have found a way to truly encapsulate in the bottle, the climate and the richness of the land. Mt Beautiful is uncompromising in quality and faithful to the terroir. As pioneers of the North Canterbury region, Mt. Beautiful owners David and Leigh were looking to invest in David’s homeland in a way that would allow expression of their passion for farm-to-table food and wine, while energizing the community to which they are so genuinely committed. By creating Mt. Beautiful Wines and adopting certified-sustainable practices, we are able to be dedicated guardians of the land, and good stewards of our heritage.
