Vinification:

Made at the Highway 50 winery.  

First made in 2001, the Avery Sauvignon Blanc allows flavours of lime, passion fruit and white peaches to show alongside the dry, mineral sensation on the palate that is unique to these soils.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks.

The wine was matured for 4 months in stainless tanks.

Cellaring Potential   1 - 3 years


The vineyard is slightly exposed to the cooling sea breeze, pushing harvest about a week later than other

Marlborough vineyards and embodies flavours more in the ripe herbaceous, gooseberry, grapefruit spectrum.

The soil in the vineyard is of an ancient stony river bed at an elevation of 21 metres above sea level

The average age of the vines are 20 years with an average yield of 97 hl/ha.

Harvested by machine.



Winery information:

The vines are managed in balance with their environment in a system of sustainable ecological viticulture. Pruning, removal of excess shoots and foliage, thinning and arranging developing shoots into supporting wires are all done by hand.

Every Craggy Range wine is made from a single vineyard, and each single vineyard is split into as many as 60 different parcels for reasons such differences in soil type, different viticultural techniques, different winemaking techniques or use of a different barrel types.

Located in the famous stony soils of Wairau Valley’s old Omaka River bed, Avery Road is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. Craggy Range first made the Avery Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc in 2001 and since that vintage have produced a series of distinctive wines, each having a unique waxy lanolin-like texture.


Tasting Note:

Very pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aroma’s of blackcurrant, lime and nectarine. The palate is long and very complete with ripe citrus fruits tempered by fresh acidity and a stony finish.
