This wine….. The Abstract shows what's possible with top end Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Expressive, yet restrained and complex. Worth seeking out to re-evaluate your expectations.

Matt Thomson is a busy winemaker. He has worked over forty vintages in numerous wine regions around the world, and won more accolades along the way than we have space to note here. A project entirely of his own was always the intention, but only at the right moment.… “The time to launch my own wine range, together with my wife Sophie, has come,” says Matt. “It has been a long-time in the making and we’ve thought long and hard about how to capture the story of us, the special vineyards we draw fruit from and the non-mainstream styles of wine we are striving to create.” It is not a stretch to say that the results have been spectacular, and they have drawn significant praise from all corners of the globe.
