2016 Marlbourough Sauvignon Blanc
Terroir – soils, climate and people – imbues a wine region with a distinct sense of place. These unique qualities allow select varietals to thrive. Just as every major city has a signature landmark, every major winegrowing region has a signature varietal.
The varietals within these regions express a character, a style and a sense of place that is wholly their own. The world’s finest winegrowing regions boast a best-of-class varietal that represents the global benchmark of quality for that varietal – the standard by which all others are held. The vision behind UNPARALLELED is to make these best-of-class (or bestof-region) wines accessible to all wine lovers.
Our Unparalleled Sauvignon Blanc is the finest expression of this popular varietal. The grapes come from an estate vineyard in the smaller Awatere Valley (“with fast flowing water” in Maori). The alluvial and rocky soils are ideal for producing Sauvignon Blanc with wonderful minerality. Our wine portrays aromas of gooseberries and passion fruit with refreshing acidity
