Description

Expressive grassy/asparagus nose backed with tropical fruits and citrus with hints of pineapple in a fruity palate. Crisp acidity, plenty of gooseberry character with herbal notes on the finish. A good balance between the varietals herbaceous notes and tropical fruit and citrus character. Taumata is the shortened form of the longest place name in the world – a hill near Porangahau, south of Waipukurau in southern Hawke’s Bay. At 85 characters we reckon it’s also the longest wine name in the world: in full and in Maori it is -Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu Its name translates into English as “the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as ‘landeater’, played his flute to his loved one. If you want to try and pronounce it:- “Tow-ma-ta-fa-ka-ta-ni-ha-na-kor-o-or-ta-ma-te-a-tu-ree-pu-kapi-ki-mong-a-ho-ro-nu-ku-po-ka-ee-fen-u-aki-ta-na-ta-hu” Coming from Hawkes Bay the wine is a rounder, more floral New Zealand Sauvignon with ripe, tropical fruit flavors.
