A brilliant value Sauvignon Blanc from award winning producer Mount Brown, located in New Zealand’s Waipara Valley. Named Wild River as the vineyard is planted on an old river bed, which provides the ideal soil conditions for making great wine. With tropical notes alongside gooseberry aromas, the palate is medium bodied with a good concentration of fruits and a crisp acidity.
New Zealander still white wine from Waipara New Zealand made with Sauvignon Blanc.
Lying in the foothills of Mount Brown in Waipara Valley this abandoned wine estate was only rediscovered 15 years ago and it is something of a success story. Waipara has a greater variation in temperature between night and day than more northerly Marlborough, yields are much lower, and this valley is fast establishing a reputation for quality. Aromatic grape varieties such as Pinot Gris, and also Pinot Noir, are perfectly suited to Mount Brown’s small sheltered stony site and wine making here is of a very high order. View our selection.
