Waikoa - Happy Waters & Waina Ma - White Wine in Te reo Māori. 

An aromatic textural white blend of Riesling, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris from Jannine Rickards, who runs the Huntress wine label.

This is made from BioGro certified and in-conversion organic fruit from the Urlar Vineyards in Gladstone, Wairarapa (where Jannine is also Chief Winemaker). It's 33% Riesling, 30% Sauvignon, 27% Viognier and 10% Gris, to be precise - each component fermented separately on their skins, then blended post-ferment after many blending trials. 

In Jannine's words the aim of this wine is "to create something energetic and intriguing. The aroma is of spice, stonefruit and citrus the palate edgy and salivating with great acidity and phenolic balance." For us, while the wine is technically a skin-fermented one it's been done so gently and with such finesse that it drinks with the lightness and refreshment of a white wine. Happy water indeed!
