Winemaker Brent Marris' father was the first person to plant Sauvignon vines in Marlborough. It seems extraordinary that in a single generation a whole new type of wine could have been developed.
Brent has had just as big an impact on Kiwi Sauvignon as his dad. He's got rafts of awards, and has launched multiple famous wine brands. Suffice to say, he really knows what he's doing and that comes through in The Ned Waihopai River Sauvignon Blanc.
Its magic is that it is so consistently, definitively a Marlborough Sauvignon. It's tropical, it's citrussy - it's the most refreshing thing you could pour into your glass at 6pm. Full of gooseberry and grapefruit flavours, it's grassy, tropical and seriously aromatic. Fantastic with Thai-style fish cakes.
