    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of passionfruit sorbet, lemon blossom, and tomato leaf gracefully fuse

    with a luscious and zesty palate and an elegant, lingering lime pith and sweet tropical fruit finish.

    Generations in the making, Mohua Wines was founded in 2009 to create delicious wines from some of New Zealand’s highest quality regions. Driven by one family’s passion for great winemaking, the focus is on merging that vision with sustainable practices to craft wines that capture the essence of their environment, while improving the land that creates them. The wines for the Mohua range are carefully selected from two of New Zealand’s most famous grape-growing regions, Marlborough and Central Otago, both located on the South Island. Named in honor of the beautiful Mohua, one of New Zealand’s rarest birds found only in some of the most remote parts of the South Island's pristine rainforests, Mohua Wines is proud to play an active role in their conservation. 

    The Mohua is one of New Zealand’s rarest birds, being found now only in some of the most remote parts of the South Island - Mohua Wines is proud to be involved the conservation efforts of this stunning chorister.

    Mohua offers wines from two of New Zealand’s best known wine regions - Mohua Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough and Mohua Pinot Noir from Central Otago.

    New Zealand

    An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

    The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

    Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
