"The Supernatural Sauvignon Blanc is everything Wine Fellas love about artisanal wine—along with everything it says it is! This Sauvignon Blanc is an eye opener, making you completely forget what you know about this variety."

The 8.8-hectare property in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand is positioned on a north-facing hillside site on calcareous soils with slopes up to 30 degrees, the estate is one of the best viticultural sites in New Zealand. The Supernatural aesthetic is unique, they chose the crown cap from the start, suggesting the perfect seal to reflect the philosophy of using traditional winemaking methods.

The Supernatural received full organic certification from BioGro in March of 2015. The next step is to move to biodynamic production and winemaker Hayden Penny has already started the biodynamic journey. He started under-vine cultivation last season, applied the first BD500 (horn manure) spray and CPP (cow pat pit) and set up biodynamic water preparation. He and his team also planted green manure cover crop between the vines to replenish the soil naturally. And, after grazing in the past, they are now growing organic barley in the lower paddock for organic chicken feed to support local organic producers and get the land back to usable state (possibly for future vine plantings).

Winemaker Hayden Penny is a new breed of young passionate winemakers who is totally focused on organic and natural winemaking in order to truly express terroir. Hayden believes in minimum intervention: he adds minimal Sulphur at bottling just to get the wine to shelves. The grapes are destemmed, 4-6 hours of skin contact then long, slow press. Natural fermentation followed by extended lees contact (around 9 months) in stainless steel. No fining which makes these wines vegan & vegetarian friendly.

The 2014 Supernatural has a beautiful, ripe Sauvignon Blanc nose of pink grapefruit, guava, ginger, honey drizzled pears and orange blossom. The palate delivers a lovely satiny texture and tons of citrus and ginger laced flavors with a lively acid backbone and very long finish. A truly amazing wine, Wine Fellas look forward to many vintages to come!
