Say New Zealand, and wine drinkers think Sauvignon Blanc. There is good reason for this: New Zealand is one of the coldest wine regions on the planet, and often full ripeness is almost impossible to achieve before winter sets in (thus you don’t see much New Zealand Cabernet Sauvignon out there).
We carry our fair share of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs — each one picked carefully for its own reasons. Some are inexpensive, some a bit pricy. A few are rounder and richer than you expect. But the main thing is this: we don’t have any just to ‘have it’ or fill a void. True to our portfolio selection process, each is carefully added with purpose.
And that’s not all. We have a healthy selection of Pinot Noirs from New Zealand as well. On some vintages, you may see a Merlot or two as well, but only if it’s up to our standards.
