James Suckling – The intensity and freshness here is hard to beat in this hotly contested category, and the intensity of peach, green-mango, lime and grapefruit flavours is impressive. Long, juicy and mouthwateringly fresh. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 93 points. Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com

About This Wine

This Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from two special Marlborough vineyards in two different sub- regions. One vineyard is in the upper Awatere Valley, and the second is Jason and Anna Flowerday's certified organic, home block vines in Renwick (Wairau Valley). The growing conditions in the Awatere Valley are characterised by cooler temperatures and slower ripening than in the Wairau, which is important for flavour development and ripe acidity.

The Te Whare Ra home block experiences the warmer days of the Wairau Valley and a bigger diurnal range, giving wines of great texture and fleshiness. This release shows distinctive Awatere characters of guava, white currant and elderflower coupled with lovely ripe tropicals and hints of basil and lime from the Wairau fruit. These follow through to the palate, which is fine and soft with vibrant, fleshy fruit and great texture which are both balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality.

Wines of Marlborough

Marlborough is at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island and is the leading region in the country, being responsible for 75% of NZ’s wine production and 85% of its exports. Marlborough is internationally renowned for its distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc, described by some wine writers such as Oz Clarke and George Taber as the best in the world. Australia being such a close neighbour, we get a great number of brands imported into the country.

Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough is grown on well-draining alluvial gravels, with large temperature fluctuations between day and night. These conditions are great for growing grapes that strike a perfect balance between ripeness and acidity. The result is sauvignon blanc that is aromatic, driven by tropical fruit flavours but also supported by an herbaceous and mineral character. Aussies often described Marlborough Savvy Blanc as full of passionfruit flavour.

Despite many consumers having an idea of what Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is, the wine is actually made in a wide range of different styles. Wine makers take advantage of different clones, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to give their wines nuance and differentiate their brand from one another. You may have had sauvignon blanc from Marlborough before, but it is always worth exploring some not so commercial brands if it is a style you enjoy.

Other varieties that are produced in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
