te Pā’s 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Oke won the Number One spot, and
The new face of Sauvignon Blanc
Through its te Pā Sauvignon Blanc Oke,
What the judges said
Of our gorgeous Oke, the panel said; “Essentially, it’s sauvignon blanc for chardonnay lovers, produced by a family that can trace their roots back to the first Maori landing at the Wairau Bar 800 years ago. Simply outstanding”. And our sublime 2017 Sauv got the praise heaped on it too; “Wow! This wine is sex on a stick. Whoever made this wine knows what they’re doing,” said judge and wine consultant Jane Boyle.
Food matches for the top wines
No award-winning wine is complete without a delicious food match. Dish Panel judge Colin Ford recommends pairing Sauvignon Blanc with oysters on the shell, or a pungent goat or sheep cheese (we love chèvre). For the home cook, you have to try the divine whole baked Thai snapper as created by Nadia Lim, which is a match made in heaven for the Oke (check out this delicious video on how to make this dish). For our 2017 Sauv, we can also never look past fresh, locally and sustainably harvested Cloudy Bay Clams with the te Pā special sauce of shallots, Chardonnay vinaigrette, coriander and a touch of sugar and water.
