About the wine

Pure, aromatic NZ goodness!
  • This wine is crafted at a core vineyard called Esprit which sits at 185m elevation on a limestone slope, a truly unique vineyard in Hawke's Bay context. The growing conditions there have given a crisp lemongrass and mineral note to the wine. If that's not enticing enough, the Skeetfield vineyard fruit component adds scrumptious passionfruit and lemongrass layers.
  • Rod's winemaking approach is very neutral to allow the quality fruit to shine. This means crushing and de-stemming at low temperatures, only employing neutral yeast, cool fermentation, and then around two months time melding and maturing on lees to build texture. All this TLC means the flavours just keep on coming in prolonged waves long after each sip!
  • The Naked Model means that Rod can cut out the middlemen and ensure the most direct route from the grower to you, the Angel who made it happen. This means he can pay the grower well for the best fruit...therefore more bang for your buck! The proof is in the pudding...this gorgeous Savvy sells out every year. If you are in to pure unwooded aromatic white wines, then look no further and get this in your basket today.

Best before
Drink now or over the next two years. It doesn't require any ageing to be at it's best.

Serving advice
Let gravity take its course! If the wine is a little reticent on first opening then a little swirl should liberate the flavours. Start well chilled and then allow to warm a little in the glass to let the flavours unfold.

Food match
Rock oysters! au naturel.

Meet the winemaker - Rod Easthope

  • Rod left his full-time post as Chief Winemaker at Craggy Range, New Zealand's most iconic winery, to set-up-shop alone and make an exclusive range of wines just for us, using the BEST grapes that Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Central Otago have to offer. 
  • Rod is an immense talent, whose wines are dripping in medals, rave journalist reviews and oodles of Parker Points - and thanks to Angel funding and backing, he's agreed to get Naked!
  • This is a huge win because Rod is at the pinnacle of New Zealand winemaking. Your tastebuds are in for an incredible treat.
