2016/7 Zephyr Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
“About as good as Marlborough gets” Tim Atkin MW
“A work of art and it leads the way for a new era of NZ Sauvignon” Matthew Jukes
Coming from 4 seperate plots in the Glover family vineyards at Dillon's Point, the Zephyr Sauvignon is delicious and made by Ben Glover, one of New Zealand's most respected wine makers.
“The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a very pretty nose of lime blossoms, fresh lemons and elderflower with cassis and thyme hints. Light to medium-bodied, crisp, zingy and minerally in the mouth, the finish is so delicuously invigorating you just can't say "no" to another glass!” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, Feb 2017
13% ABV. Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
The Glover family vineyards, planted in 1985 alongside the meandering Opawa River, have inspired the family’s passion for wine. The vineyard is now very much an aromatic specialist with Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Riesling. The viticultural and winemaking philosophy embraces the structural strengths of the vineyard. The wines show classic cool climate precision matched with palate depth and the ability to support texture. Winemaker Ben Glover says "I have always wanted to express the exquisite refined bouquet, the precise structure and the 'line' of these aromatic wines from our farm. Zephyr allows me to do this - winegrowing is a natural expression and extension of what our family and I have done on this property for years and the opportunity to pay them back with home grown, world class wines is too good to be true," says Ben.
Delicious with scallops, summer salads, Thai food, prosciutto and soft goats cheeses.
