It’s hard to separate New Zealand and Sauvignon Blanc these days, but we were the first to put them together, planting the first Sauvignon Blanc in 1969 and producing our first bottle in 1974. You could say we’ve changed the way the world drinks wine. Has it gone to our heads? Hardly. But it has fired us up to do more. Matua began with a vision shared by Bill and Ross Spence – to revolutionise the New Zealand wine industry by making wines with the best fruit from the best vineyards. A philosophy that still stands today and has earned us international recognition for our pioneering work.
Soft in color with green hues, this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows tropical and citrus fruits along with attractive herbaceous/varietal characters on the nose. The palate is generous and fruit driven with classical Marlborough acidity giving a fresh, clean palate and passionfruit finish.
