Uva Mira benefits from the location of its mountain vineyards, which are 620 metres above sea level at their highest point, as the climate falls into category two on the Winkler Scale. In layman’s terms this means it has a lot more in common with vineyards in France than their South African neighbours. This, alongside the decomposed granite soils, allows them to produce wines which are the finest expression of terroir we’ve seen from anywhere in the New World.
The Mira Sauvignon Blanc expresses itself with far greater vivacity and vibrancy than its elegant and finessed partner, Sing-a-Wing. Packed full of ripe tropical guava, green apple and lime peel it surpasses any effort from Marlborough at this price or even higher.
