Country: New Zealand, Marlborough
Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough is situated at the top northeast corner of the South Island of New Zealand.

This Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is made from small parcels of fruit selected from Marlborough`s finest vineyard sites where the grapes enjoy ideal growing conditions of free-draining soils, warm days, cool nights and low rainfall. It was harvested at optimum ripeness and hand-crafted by the winemaker, Megan Simmonds, to produce exceptional wine.

Grapes for this wine were carefully harvested when they reached their optimum ripeness. They have pressed off their skins quickly with minimum contact so as to preserve fresh flavours.

Tasting Notes:
 This Sauvignon Blanc displays gooseberry, passionfruit and honeysuckle characteristics. The palate is intensely concentrated, rich and lively with a fresh crisp finish.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with fresh seafood, grilled seasonal vegetables or poultry.

The Grape
Sauvignon Blanc
An important white grape in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley that has now found fame in New Zealand and now Chile. It thrives on the gravelly soils of Bordeaux and is blended with Sémillon to produce fresh, dry, crisp Bordeaux Blancs, as well as more prestigious Cru Classé White Graves.

It is also blended with Sémillon, though in lower proportions, to produce the great sweet wines of Sauternes. It performs well in the Loire Valley and particularly on the well-drained chalky soils found in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where it produces bone dry, highly aromatic, racy wines, with grassy and sometimes smoky, gunflint-like nuances.

New Zealand, in the 1980s, began producing stunning Sauvignon Blanc wines with extraordinarily intense nettly, gooseberry, and asparagus fruit that set Marlborough firmly on the world wine map.

It is now grown very successfully in Chile producing wines that are almost halfway between the Loire and New Zealand in terms of fruit character.
