Saorsa

Saorsa. A term to describe a radical sense of freedom that represents our philosophy completely. Our aim is to produce honest and sincere wines that are free to sing their own song and truly express themselves and the sites they are grown. Wines of great balance and texture, using what nature provides… time and thought.

Here at Saorsa Wines we make small production wines by hand in the beautiful Hawke’s Bay. We select specific sites that not only have the greatest attributes for exceptional quality but also a unique individuality that manifests in the wine itself. Production is with the lightest of hands, in a traditional manner using everything the grapes bring with them without industrial manipulation and additives.

Saorsa. Freedom – Liberty – Salvation.

Saorsa 2018 Syrah Bottle Shot

2018 Syrah

Aromatic notes of rose petals and dried herbs layered upon liquorish, smoke and earth. Fresh and lively with a seductive silky finish. Our wines are produced with oxygen exposure and develop greatly once opened. Decanting the wines will allow them to truly express themselves.

We are overjoyed to have these stunning new wines from @saorsawines in Hawkes Bay on our shelves! Despite courier upsets that have plagued us this week they are finally here! They are made by an amazing young couple in Hawkes Bay! The 15 Viognier is incredibly rich and opulent while the 16 Syrah is a little more restrained with sappy, spicy fruit! They offer amazing value for money at $30 a pop! Saorsa is Gaelic for freedom, salvation and liberty and it is with these values in mind these wines are presented. They are among the most honest, pure and personal wines we’ve tasted in ages! bit.ly/2wQJtpv #lofiwine #nzwine#wineworthworshipping #hbwine#younggunsofkiwiwine

ViognYAY or ViognNAY? (Bad pun…🤦🏻‍♀️) Viognier is growing on me… so, I’m on the hunt for any recommendations, please 👇 Here’s one I tried recently that you might like 😁

Saorsa (the feminine for freedom, salvation and liberty in Gaelic) specialises in low-intervention Syrah and Viognier from Hawke’s Bay. @saorsawines use pretty much no nasties in their wines – they are unfined, unfiltered and use minimal sulphur. Their 2016 Viognier is dry and textured (from oak ageing). I got stone fruit and white pepper aromas + peach, saline and mineral notes with a bitter perfumed finish. Another example of great, simple branding too 👌 .
