    Dry Style, stubbornly serious and ideal for the sauvignon enthusiast. Never heavy but potently intense in its flavours and, with air time, a lovely glass of sauvignon. The balance of fruit strength and drinkability is a joy to behold. A mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc with character.

    Amongst the sea of quality Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that is flooding Australia, Seresin Sauvignon Blanc stands out as having that something extra: perhaps it is the wild yeast ferment; perhaps the partial barrel ferment; or perhaps it is the 5 per cent of Semillon in the blend. Whatever the secret, this wine has body and finesse that raises it above its Marlborough peers.

    Established back in 1985, Nautilus is one of the true stalwarts of the Marlborough region, particularly when it comes to Sauvignon Blanc. Produced from mature vines, there’s a level of elegance and complexity that clearly places it amongst the top echelon of producers. While a little more subdued than the norm aromatically, the wine builds through the palate with tremendous fruit concentration, culminating in a delicious lingering finish. Oven baked whole snapper with coriander, lime and chilli please.

    A bouquet of white flowers, lemon curd, guava, honeydew melon and a touch of spice define the aromatics in our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. The palate offers fleshy fruit flavours of yellow peach and nectarine, with bright citrus and an element of spice for a fine dry finish. In 2012, John became the Chief Winemaker at Te Kairanga and is focused on creating a culture to make great wine. 'I love wine and, more importantly, winemaking. I love the many aspects of being a winemaker, but most important to me is the creativity of a unique expression. What makes a wine great is life, vitality, completeness and a sense of place.' After studying, some in the UK and visiting some of famous wine regions of the wold, he moved to Martinborough to follow his love of Pinot Noir. John says 'Martinborough was not historically a place to grow grapes like Burgundy or a nice place to live like Nelson it is a place settled specifically to make great wine. It is a genuine village with a strong emphasis on wine'

    Trendy packaging with the juice inside to match! Squealing Pig is an exciting new wine from the Awatere sub-region of Marlborough. Attractive tropical and kiwi fruit notes drive a more refined and elegant style with a mineral edge. Ben and Spring are two of the youngest makers around and combine their varied backgrounds to create wines that like them, are a little bit unique. Ben Bell grew up somewhere rural, but is now the urban hipster of the winemaking world. A key part of his role is to see what people are drinking in bars and clubs around town 'to ensure that we’re creating wines suitable for all occasions'. Spring Timlin's inherent creativity has served her well! In complete contrast to Ben, the city girl packed her bags and moved to the country to get a little closer to the source of the Squealing Pig goodness. She is now based in Marlborough and oversees winemaking from start to end.
