About the wine

Elevated in every way
  • At 200m above sea level in Marlborough's southern Waihopai Valley lie the low yielding vines from which Mike and his team plucked only the best grapes possible, late in the cool season. Handled with incredible care from vineyard to bottle, something truly special was crafted. Angels with a love for the Marlborough need look no further for Top Shelf quality!
  • The wine has slightly cooler fruit expression due to proximity of the vineyard, showing a blend of pea pod and flowers layers. This leads to a fine boned but textured palate full of sweet and sour citrus from lees contact.
  • Delivering a unique and singular vineyard expression, Mike has combined all the hallmarks that top Marlborough Sauvignon is known for - aromatic lift, concentration, balance and a long succulent finish. Get a few of these safely in your next case before the vintage is all drunk up!

Meet the winemaker - Mike Paterson

  • Mike has 10 years of exceptional winemaking experience. Until recently he was the head winemaker of one of Marlborough's most internationally respected wineries and wine brands.
  • Mike wanted to one day make his own wine & knew an opportunity such as this, as provided by the Naked Angels would be just too hard to ignore.
  • Mike's ambition with his wines is to represent the pureness of Marlborough's striking landscapes and growing seasons, but with balance and texture and in turn immeasurable drinkability.
