ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Giunta by Daniel Brennan Sauvignon

Giunta by Daniel Brennan Sauvignon is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and its pink-skinned cousin Sauvignon Gris. The nose shows dried rose petals, patchouli, white pepper, and jasmine. It then opens up to the aromas of sweet peas, tinned pear, and dried limes. The palate is rich with more pears, juicy acidity, and a racy dry finish. Briny fruit, Turkish Delight, and river stone linger on the palate calling for oysters and pan-fried white fish in olive oil.

About Giunta Wines

Daniel Brennan discovered New Zealand wines at his family restaurant in Philly. His story and wines are all about the people who inspire him and the places he has been. Giunta wines are young and fresh, typically sold straight into restaurants. The name is special to Daniel’s heritage. It is the family name of his Sicilian Great Grandparents and translates to a “good addition to the family”.

About Hawke’s Bay

Hawke’s Bay is a wine region in New Zealand, highly regarded for its very high-quality Bordeaux-style reds and full-bodied Chardonnays. Syrah, produced in a classic European style with strong black-pepper flavors, is another grape variety thought to have great potential here.

The region is located on the east coast of the North Island, in and around the cities of Napier and Hastings, and Havelock North. It boasts New Zealand’s second-largest regional wine industry (after Marlborough).

The region, and viticultural area, of Hawke’s Bay, derives its name from the large, semi-circular bay (Hawke Bay) on the Pacific coastline roughly on the central-east side of the North Island. The bay lies 300km (190 miles) northeast of the capital Wellington and 430km (270 miles) southeast of Auckland.

Hawke’s Bay is one of New Zealand’s oldest wine regions, dating back to 1851 when missionaries planted vineyards to make sacramental wines. This is a history shared by many New World wine regions, notably California and Chile.

The first commercial sale of wines in Hawke’s Bay was recorded in 1870. By the 1920s, a thriving wine industry called Hawke’s Bay home, and some of the early wineries are still operating today – Te Mata, Mission Estate, and Church Road among them.
