From the Producer

A lively, citrus nose with unique stone fruit character. Rich and soft on the palate with a mandarin-like ripeness balanced by the bright citrus on the nose. The mid-palate develops into a melee of ripe fruit flavors, including passion fruit and kiwifruit

"Passion fruit and honeysuckle flavors are bright and vivid, with spicy melon notes on the finish. Offers plenty of grapefruit zest, finishing crisp. Drink now. 6,000 cases made." (89 pts.)

Marlborough

Marlborough is undoubtedly New Zealand's most famous wine region, producing many of the crisp and fresh Sauvignon Blancs that put New Zealand on the wine map.

Located on the northeastern corner of South Island, this region is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east and towering mountains to the north and south. This spectacularly beautiful setting has the ideal climate and soil composition for Sauvignon Blanc vineyards.

South Island

The picturesque South Island of New Zealand is home to five renowned wine regions, each with a number of quality producers. Marlborough is famous for producing some of New Zealand's crisp and zesty Sauvignon Blancs, while Central Otago is home to some terrific Pinot Noirs. You'll also find great wines in the other regions: Canterbury, Nelson, and Waipara Valley.

New Zealand

From the crisp acidity of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc to the bold complexity of Central Otago’s Pinot Noirs, New Zealand wine is as unmistakable as it is unapologetic. Still a relative newcomer to the wine industry after making a splash in the global market in the late 1970’s, New Zealand has wasted no time in carving out a name for themselves and their distinctive wines.

Sauvignon Blanc is New Zealand’s crown jewel, and thus, the most exported wine. The ferocious acidity and stark notes of grapefruit, gooseberry, and cut grass lead to an unforgettable wine drinking experience.

Other grapes of note in New Zealand include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also being grown for Bordeaux-style blends in the Hawke’s Bay region as well.
