Fragrant & Lush!

When Marlborough’s first Sauvignon Blanc vines were planted in 1975, no one could have predicted the superstar status that this variety would attain within a couple of decades. Enterprising couple Phil and Chris Rose planted their first vines in 1978 and named their winery after one of the South Island’s longest rivers, the Wairau River. It is here that the river's lower reaches surround a fertile plain, and today is one of New Zealand's finest wine producing regions. Thanks to high sunshine hours and dramatic swings in temperatures from day to night, the piquant aromatics that makes New Zealand wines so distinctive are locked in and flavors boosted. Instantly recognizable, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc assails the senses with gooseberry, tomato stalk, red bell pepper, grapefruit and undertones of passionfruit. On the palate, zippy acidity takes center stage followed by loads of lush citrus fruit and herbal flavors. Marlborough is New Zealand's treasure trove for fragrant, lush and food-friendly Sauvignon Blanc.
