The vineyard is canopy trained to standard vertical shoot positioning, 2.5 x 1.5m density, young vines, pruned to two canes, yielding an average of two tonne/acre. Various picks are conducted through the vineyard, determined when parcels ripen to healthy baumes and and are at the optimal level of Brix. Select pressings were taken from two parcels within the vineyard and underwent separate fermentation. Only the first five hundred litres/tonne was used and allowed to settle for two to four days at 8C to 10C. The must was racked and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermented for thirty days at temperatures 14C to 18.5C first pick, and twenty six days at temperatures 13.5C to 19.0C second pick.
The third release of this pure, single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Dancing Water is driven by the vision of Ross Trowsdale and Clare Bisso. Trowsdale studied viticulture and oenology, after which he travelled and worked vintages in the new and old world for a number of great producers, Pegasus Bay and Felton Road, Wyndham Estate and Cristom Vineyards, Weingut Stefanshof and Alois Kracher. These experiences have nurtured a love and respect for fine wine and the making of it.
A brilliant pale straw colour. Intense and perfumed, the aroma is multi level with fully pungent passionfruit, guava and citrus fruit fragrances over underlying notes of flint, mineral and green capsicum. This transfers on to the palate with an elegant integration of mineral, ripe citrus, tropical fruit flavours and a crisp acidity. Vibrant and fully expressive of a single vineyard, the streamlined texture persists on the mineral tinged, tangy lime finish.

Dancing Water is a small family owned winery located in the South Island’s Waipara Valley

The focus is on crafting distinctive wines that accentuate a particular takiwa (place, district, region, time, season, space), that adds individual complexity to the varietal character and allows true expression of a great site.

 Dancing Water

Dancing Water is driven by the vision of Ross Trowsdale and Clare Bisso. Ross studied Viticulture and Oenology at Lincoln University, New Zealand, after which he travelled and worked vintages in both the New and Old World for a number of top quality wine producers; New Zealand, (Pegasus Bay and Felton Road), Australia (Wyndham Estate), the USA (Cristom Vineyards) and Austria (Weingut Stefanshof and Alois Kracher). These experiences have nurtured a love and respect for fine wine and the making of it. Partner, Clare Bisso, is the sales and marketing director for Dancing Water.

Together, Ross and Clare share a passion and love for fine wine and are dedicated to the singular pursuit of producing high quality, limited production fine New Zealand wine. The name and story behind Dancing Water are both memorable and key to the brand.

When selecting the name for the wines it was important to see that it had a deep connection to both New Zealand and to the estate's own philosophy of wine making. In researching geographical place names in New Zealand, Ross and Clare discovered Dancing Water, a little known and untouched part of New Zealand’s South Island where a mountain stream flows through magnificent terrain and native bush.

Ross and Clare liked the idea of naming the wine after a place that represents New Zealand at its purest as well as the spiritual sense of place the name evoked. They further found that in myth and legend Dancing Water is the name given to a magical substance once sought by alchemists, an elixir of life believed to rejuvenate, enrich and maintain life indefinitely. Dancing Water perfectly reflects their passion and philosophy of wine and wine making, seeking the timeless, moving and mystical qualities that signify great quality wine.
