New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - 6 Bottle Case
Marlborough, New Zealand
The name Sauvignon is from the French word Sauvage meaning "wild", and Ireland is wild about New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! We are not alone in our crush on this green-skinned grape from the Loire as New Zealand still reigns the "Sauvignon Blanc capital of the world."
This case is a collection of the best of what New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has to offer made by maverick winemakers who have tamed this wild grape using minimal intervention and organic methods to rival the greats from the Old World. You'll experience jaw-dropping herbaceous and floral aromas with zesty acidity ranging from the vibrant tropical fruits flavours of the South to the stone fruit and nectarine flavours of the North.
Sauvignon Blanc also loves food, so you are set for dinner, a picnic, or a treat with your takeaway.
1x Eradus - Marlborough
This Awatere Valley white wine is from a single vineyard in New Zealand and can only be described as exhilarating. Beautiful, ripe passion fruit, pineapple and zesty green apples are reined in with zingy acidity and topped with wonderful aromas reminiscent of cut grass on a summer’s day.
1x Paddy Borthwick - Wairarapa
This is from the best grapes and shows the true expression of the Borthwick Estate Sauvignon
Blanc. The excellent soil and climate, along with an intuitive approach to viticulture and care
in the winery, gives this wine expressive vibrance.
1x Glazebrook - Marlborough
Today, a "New Zealand style" wine has a distinct, identifiable character. Glazebrook was a pioneer
that helped shape the evolution of this recognisable typicity of wine. The winery follows the
practices of sustainability, and the focus has always been on the clearest translation of grapes into
wine with minimal intervention. These are wines of clarity, freshness, and vibrant acidity.
1x Ana - Marlborough
The Awatere Valley is home to the Eradus family's 12 hectares of vines. It is windier, dryer, stonier and
cooler than Marlborough's other growing regions and these conditions contribute to their Sauvignon
Blanc having a lovely mineral backbone with crisp, clean acidity.
2x Stables - Hawk's Bay
An aromatic nose of mango, rock melon and lime with a herbal edge. A delicious vibrant full-bodied palate with stonefruit, tropical fruits and gooseberry flavours. Fresh limey acidity gives a refreshing finish.
