Label for Waipara Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Product Details

Tasting Notes

This is a stunning wine with gorgeous aromas of guava and an almost nettle-like character.

Full and fresh, with lively lemon and grapefruit flavours that build on the palate.

Elegantly restrained.

The fresh, crisp, aromatic style really suits Thai food, especially spicy crab cakes or mild curries.

Also works brilliantly with quiches or tomato salads.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

A relative newcomer, this quietly brilliant Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is fantastic value for money. It is utterly delicious, with ripe, tropical fruits including guava, melon and passion fruit. Sourced from the South Island’s Wairau and Awatere Valleys, this wine is wonderfully bright and generous on the palate, with great length of flavour. For best results, serve with dressing-drenched salads or Asian foods.

Background

History

Made by the Waipara Hills winery, a relative newcomer to the wine scene, who made their first vintage in 2001. Now with over 1000 acres of vineyards, they are one of the leading producers based in the Waipara region.

Regional info

This is a top-class, awardwinning Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region in New Zealand’s South Island. The grapes are grown in vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, sub-regions of Marlborough. The 2011 vintage was both big and beautiful. A cool spring gave the grapes plenty of time on the vine to ripen. Crucially, a stable autumn season followed, so the grapes were in great shape and picked at just the right time.
