Where It's From

District / Marlborough

View more wines from 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.

Region / South Island

View more wines from 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.

Country / New Zealand

View more wines from 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.

This still-very-young wine has all the trademark Sauvignon Blanc aromas (grass, passion fruit, lemon-lime) with some white spice and oniony reduction notes, too. There’s a bit of residual sugar visible on the palate. It sits a bit flat, but the pungent green herb and citrus flavors are there, too. (Christina Pickard)

A fresh, fruit-filled nose of peach and passionfruit, backed by dried herb and green veg nuances, leads to a razor-sharp palate. Acidity is prickly and a touch of residual sugar flares up on the finish, and the fruit falls somewhat to the wayside. (Christina Pickard)

Luscious and expressive, with terrific concentration to the ripe peach, passion fruit and yuzu flavors on a sleek and juicy frame. Drink now. 3,200 cases made, 1,050 cases imported. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
JS8888 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, November 8, 2022
Very youthful and punchy nose with lots of green apples, gooseberries, green beans and white asparagus. Very fresh, yet simple and direct on the palate, which quickly turns acidic with a concise finish. It needs mid-palate intensity to be rated any higher than this. Vegan. Sustainable. Drink now. Screw cap.
