New Zealand Marlborough Sauv Blanc
France used to be the standard-bearer for Sauvignon Blanc. In 1985 that all changed when New Zealand produced its first vintage. Overnight the world had a new model for Sauvignon Blanc startlingly different and delicious. Marlborough has the sunniest driest climate in New Zealand . The Wairau Valley’s rich soil combine with the cool nights to deliver astonishingly pungent wines with gooseberry herbs pink grapefruit fresh-cut grass asparagus lime-leaf tropical fruit passion fruit and a host of other beguiling aromas. Few wines ever achieve the amazing aromatic complexity and zesty fruit of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc casts long rich flavors redolent with grass and current leaves and a crisp dry finish. Snappy refreshing and delicious after only three months this wine will age gorgeously for two years.
