New Zealand is home to a particularly intense style of Sauvignon Blanc that’s very popular in the U.S. The best come from Marlborough, like this crisp beauty from Wairau River Estate and the pioneering Rose family (who were among the first to plant grapes here over 30 years ago). Phil’s a pretty big name in the industry, and was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by Wine Marlborough a few years back. We can’t wait for you to try his latest release – expect mouthwatering kiwi and citrus aromas and lipsmacking lime, guava and gooseberry flavors.
Wairau River Estate is a true family affair. Like the business, its founders Phil and Chris have seen their family grow tremendously over the last few decades. Today, the whole family is involved in the estate’s daily operations – from in the vineyard and winery to cooking and baking at their acclaimed restaurant, The Cellar Door. And the Roses are happy to send their Kora (meaning ‘distant place’ in Maori) all the way to your family’s table.
