New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is the white wine grape variety that put Marlborough on the international wine map. The Marlborough wine region, at the northern tip of the South Island, has the reputation as one of the great Sauvignon Blanc regions of the world. Originating from western France, Sauvignon Blanc is now New Zealand’s most planted variety and is successfully grown throughout all its wine regions.

The Sauvignon Blanc’s produced in the North Island tend to be softer and less herbaceous than those grown in the South Island. Most of Marlborough’s Sauvignon Blanc’s display the pungent, grassy green flavours that the international wine community associate with the New Zealand style.

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc’s are normally produced un-oaked and comes with a variety of flavours and aromas from blackcurrant leaf, capsicum and asparagus to green apples, gooseberries, nectarine and passion fruit.

Sauvignon is a relatively robust, vigorous vine adapting readily to all kinds of growing environments. Its early ripening period allows it to grow in relatively cool climates while its naturally high acidity allows it to retain a level of freshness even in warmer regions. However, a cooler terroir with persistent bright sunshine and a dry harvest period achieves the true, forward zing that best characterizes Sauvignon Blanc wine.
