In 1981, Pask planted the first vines in an ancient Ngaruroro riverbed, founding Hawke’s Bay’s renowned Gimblett Gravels wine district. The vision for the project began in the air, when founder Chris Pask – flying in the cockpit of his topdressing plane – first saw the potential for growing exceptional grapes in the light, stony soils of the ancient Ngaruroro riverbed. Sheltered from Pacific breezes and several degrees warmer than any other New Zealand wine-growing area, it was in this sun-drenched valley that Chris planted Pask’s first vines thirty years ago. A prized 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon marked the first vintage and from this modest beginning, the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels wine-growing district was established, and the Pask brand family label was established.
40 years later, the Pask winemaking team remain as passionate as ever about creating wines to be shared and enjoyed. An award-winning winemaking team use sustainable methods ensure the quality and consistency of Pask wines. From grape-picking in the 60 hectares of vineyards to bottling at the Hawke’s Bay winery, there is hands-on care throughout the entire winemaking process.
Every bottle of Pask wine embodies the decades of experience, ethos of sustainability and care taken during every step of the winemaking process, elegantly expressing this unique terroir.
Pask’s Sauvignon leaps out of the glass with aromas of gooseberry, greengage and a faint grassy note. Abundant green fruit character continues to delight on the palate and finishes with a zippy citrus twist. Enjoy with appetizers, seafood, green salads, goat cheese.
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Gimblett Gravels district, in the Hawkes Bay region which is on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Although Gimlett Gravels is only a very small area, the district has made a significant impact on the New Zealand wine market in a very short space of time. It is one of the hottest and sunniest areas of New Zealand. With 2320 annual sunshine hours, moderate rainfall, sheltering inland ranges and a warm maritime climate with a long growing season, the region is an ideal location for creating grapes of exceptional quality.
