Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

HaHa - is a Maoiri word loosely translated to mean savory and luscious. Marlborough is New Zealand's largest wine growing region, located in the Wairau Valley this Sauvignon Blanc has gained a lot of attention. The aromatics are delightful and the palate is chalk full of intense flavors of ripe tropical fruit and a wonderful herbaceous expression. Crisp and clean, balanced acidity - truly a great price point on this wine!
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale gold colour in the glass, a much richer hue than most Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, this wine boasts distinct herbal aromas and undertones of pineapple. A lovely mouthwatering juiciness, and a long citrus finish, make this pick perfect with creamy dishes or salads.
Tasted March 2017.
Hãhã (2015) is a zesty New Zealand white wine is produced by Fern Ridge Wine and made from the country's classic Sauvignon Blanc grape. Finishes with lemon zest and gooseberry notes. Haha is the native Maori word which means savoury and luscious. Aromas of gooseberry and laughing sunlight. Vibrant lime citrus and tangy zest on the finish. Drink now into 2018. - Community Wine Reviews
