Halcyon Days 'Halcyon' (formerly Kotare) is Amy and Olly's Skin-Contact/ Orange Sauvignon Blanc.
From the Osawa (BioGro-certified organic) vineyard in Mangatahi, Hawke's Bay, the grapes were hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and then wild fermented in stainless steel. Just 10% alcohol, the wine is light, energetic and vibrant. It's a softer, more textural style of Sauvignon which has flavours of stonefruit and nashi pear. Fragrant, musk. Delicious.
Unfined, unfiltered, no added sulphites or additions of any kind.
We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.
We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free.
We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening.
Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
