Sauv Blanc lovers know that beautiful New Zealand is a magnificent place to grow this varietal – it’s often nicknamed the world’s Sauvignon Blanc capital, after all. Unmistakable the moment the first explosive aromas hit your nose, the signature grape from this small island nation off Australia’s eastern coast has become enormously popular stateside and around the globe. While different subtleties are on display from the country’s north and south islands, it’s the Marlborough region of the South Island that sets the benchmark.
Lot 780 comes to us from a stalwart Marlborough producer with some of the most prime real estate in the country. Sourced from vineyards planted in deep silt loam soils by the Wairau River with fantastic canopy density, the grapes receive plenty of maritime influence and a long growing season that develops more complexity in the fruit, resulting in a wine that’s intense in flavor, dialed-in with signature acidity, and perfectly weighted on the palate. Just one sip is enough to remind you why the zesty citrus bursts of Marlborough have elevated the region to such vaunted heights.
