Staff Reviews

Dan Updike - Prestige Wine & Spirits March 11, 2015

"Pure and quite racy, this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc tastes like a meeting between Marlborough and Loire expressions of the grape, with lots of mineral and flint notes to the lime, grapefruit zest and lithe peach flavors."

Critical Acclaim

WE88 Wine Enthusiast 3/1/2016

"There’s no real estate associated with this label, but don’t let that stop you from trying this reasonably priced wine. Hints of struck flint and damp fern mark the nose, followed by bright passion-fruit flavors and a stony, crisp finish." (88 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.
