Another single vineyard Blank Canvas wine, the Marlborough winery whose wines have redefined just what's so impressive about New Zealand winemaking.

Hints of peach, mandarin, and classic Grüner white pepper. Meticulous winemaking, treating with kid gloves before final blending, and you've got a Kiwi take on the classic Austrian grape variety that's simply outstanding.

Many say there's no better match for pan-fried scallops. Cutting edge Kiwi white wine you simply must try.

While this GV is partly aged in new and used oak, you can hardly notice it, and the classic white pepper notes are well defined with the addition of citrus and peach. Zesty, elegant and light. Christine Guibert, Decanter

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"This is another winning wine from Matt and Sophie Parker-Thomson, winemaking couple behind Blank Canvas. Large French oak barrels, new and used, where employed to vinify this wine, but it wears any hint of oak very lightly indeed, focusing instead on vibrant, essential-oil fruitiness and crispness. Orange and rind and pepper dominate the nose, and yes, a subtle sheen of creamy oak, but the palate is bright and ram-jam packed with flavour, the lime and mandarin orange clarity of the acidity in the finish is just lovely"
Given its a relative newcomer to making wines, New Zealand is blessed with some exceptional wine regions. Most famous of all is undoubtedly Marlborough, forever linked to the runaway Kiwi wine success: Sauvignon Blanc.

This strikingly beautiful wine region is found at the northeastern tip of the south island. Whilst it's Sauvignon that's by far and away the top variety here, Chardonnay, Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, and Pinot Noir are all making some of the best New Zealand wines you'll ever taste.

Hawkes Bay, near Napier on the north island, is best known for its red wines, thanks to some top gravelly soils and ideal ripening conditions. Blank Canvas' Syrah comes from this red wine hotspot.

Chilean Fish Stew

Pair rich fish stews with vibrant, zesty whites such as Sauvignon Blanc which have enough fruit flavour to balance out the punchy garlic, herbs and tomatoes. Or, if you're looking for something different this Grüner Veltliner form Blank Canvas will knock your socks off.

Spicy Pork Curry

Try this aromatic pork dish with its layers of complex spice with a vibrant, ripe white (not too dry) which will balance out the heat of the curry without overshadowing the rich flavours. New world Grüner Veltliner is a great option for this dish.

Fusion Prawn And Vegetable Curry

The fragrance and flavours of coconut, chilli and ginger hold their own and can only be complemented by a fruity, light white - it has to be Grüner Veltliner from Blank Canvas.
