Drink now or cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

The intriguing name of Spy Valley winery refers to the fact that it’s situated just up the road from a top secret US listening post. It’s also one of the few boutique wineries in Marlborough that is still in the hands of the original founding family, the Johnsons, who first planted vines here in 1993. These days they have some 380 acres under vine on the terraced southern slopes of the Lower Waihopai where conditions are ideal for making exceptional Sauvignon Blanc.

This easy-going Sauvignon is a great introduction to the Spy Valley house style with plenty of freshness balanced by bright and vibrant fruit. The grapes for this bottling are carefully selected from estate plots to maintain consistency from vintage to vintage. The Johnsons focus on low yielding vines and ensuring that the fruit is fully ripe before harvesting to give the wine a bit more structure than other New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.

Expect plenty of fruit on the nose and palate with bold notes of pink grapefruit, tropical fruit like mango and passionfruit, and some more delicate herbal notes which linger on the tongue. Overall the ripe fruit is perfectly matched by the mouthwatering acidity, culminating in a pure and clean finish which makes this white an ideal aperitif or cooling poolside drink.
