If you thought you knew Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and had its aromas and flavours pinned down to a tee, then be ready for a surprise.

For you're about to experience a wine like no other, sourcing all its grapes from one select vineyard at Dillons Point, an easterly vineyard with maritime influence, it's designed to capture the very special nature of that place.

Harvested at night, to preserve the grapes' crispness, it's made with minimum intervention in the winery, giving you a super-pure, linear Sauvignon Blanc that would be sheer heaven with seafood (especially oysters and scallops).

Bone-dry sauvignon blanc, with impressive purity and pronounced oyster shell, mineral flavours together with gooseberry, grapefruit and citrus. Quite a textural wine with good weight and mouth-feel. 94 pts Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review

The Winemaker

When you think about what goes into making the best wines, the experience and knowledge of the winemaker are critical.

Matt Thomson's resumé is impressive. Taking advantage of the fact grapes are harvested at different times in the northern hemisphere compared to New Zealand, he's worked both there and in France and Italy. 2016 saw his 50th vintage, thanks to this 'flying winemaker' approach.

Matt's successful wine consultancy business, Kiwi-Oeno, has given him experience with a range of grape varieties and the wines they make. From Refosco, Corvina and Garganega in Northern Italy to Vermentino, Picpoul and Carignan in the South of France.

The Region

Given it's a relative newcomer to making wines, the country of 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 white 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.

A classic French dish which is surprisingly versatile with many styles of wine - for a slightly different take, try a ripe, citrussy New World white such as an Aussie Semillon or Blank Canvas Sauvignon Blanc, 2018, Marlborough.
