On the palate citrus and lime flavors are married with complex stone fruit qualities. These classical Marlborough flavors are concentrated and intense, matched with fine acidity making wine with great balance and length.

 

PROFILE: Pale, straw color. Ripe gooseberries, herbal aromas, and tropical fruit.

STYLE: Richly textured, crisp, and refreshing. Light and dry with some acidity. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

PAIRING: Enjoy with seafood, poultry, acidic and grilled foods.

APPELLATION: Marlborough, New Zealand

FAMILY OWNED, ESTATE GROWN AND BOTTLED WINE

Nestled at the top of the South Island in New Zealand, Marlborough — the country’s largest wine region.

 

Recognized internationally for its distinctive pungency and zesty fruit flavors, Marlborough continues to establish a strong reputation for its Sauvignon Blanc wines. Caressed by year-round sunshine and cool nights, the region’s climate helps build and maintain the notable flavors that make the wine capital of New Zealand famous.

 

​For over 30 years, our grapes have been able to retain both a fresh, vibrant flavor and a crisp herbaceous character, thanks to the region’s distinctive day-to-night temperatures. The strong contrast between warm, sunny days to fresh, chilly nights promote invigorating flavors and help balance acidity levels.

 

Wrapped in free-draining, earthy ground, this region’s soil allows our viticulturist to control the vigorous vines for optimum taste and quality.

 

With its breathtaking beauty, fertile plains and thriving vineyards, Marlborough has plenty to offer, whether it be prancing to the sounds of a spectacular cove, biking across the legendary Queen Charlotte Track, or savoring an award-winning Sauvignon Blanc.

Fernz + Great Food

Sauvignon blanc is many people's favorite wine but what type of food pairs with it best?

As with other grape varieties its style varies markedly from one part of the world to the other - from the crisp minerally whites of the Loire to the exuberant gooseberry and passionfruit flavors of sauvignons from New Zealand's Marlborough region.

 

​Although many are interchangeable so far as food pairings are concerned others suit specific types of dishes and ingredients.

In general, the high acidity of Sauvignon Blanc has the ability to make most foods shine, much as lemon complements many dishes. The acidity pairs well not only with fried foods but with foods that are intrinsically more difficult to pair due to such elements as the chlorophyll of green vegetables or the umami of rich dried or dry aged foods. Acidity also balances out salty and cured foods.

 

These are the aristocrats of white fish wines. Dry, austere, and crisp. Sauvignon Blancs are the wines to reach for when serving lean, white fish cooked simply.

 

Flounder, halibut, walleye, snapper, raw clams, or oysters all do well with these wines. Alternatively, you can use these wines to cut through the natural fat in some fish, such as striped bass, catfish, lobster, or mussels.
