Really cool story here behind Little Wing; wife and husband Gillian and Gareth MacLachlan bought a nearly abandoned oceanfront vineyard on Waiheke in 2014 and got straight to work rejuvenating the property.

The vineyard is a natural bowl shape with super steep slopes of heavy clay and a multitude of different aspects and sun exposures. It is heavily influenced by the ocean. In order to respect this unique site, the vines are all hand-worked and managed organically (though they are not certified at this stage).

This is in the top 5 of wines I've drunk in the last year. A special occasion wine, if you have a decanter, use it! If you don't, I find a coffee plunger works a treat. Let the wine breath!
