Enter Marlborough Cuvee, an expression of the innate contrasts from New Zealand's deep south, full of all the vibrant Sauvignon Blanc characters that Waipara Hills are famous for. Marlborough Cuvee treats your palate to zesty, kiwi and gooseberry fruit flavours that come alive. The crisp acidity and refined bubbles are balanced by just a touch of moderating sweetness that's sure to get the party started.
At Waipara Hills the philosophy is all about allowing the characteristics of the harvest to shine and achieve their balance with as little interference as possible, for wines that are bursting with flavour. Each vintage signals the beginning of a new adventure, to create wines which are recognizably from a place of contrasts and great natural beauty. Crafted exclusively from Sauvignon Blanc grown to the Awatere and Wairau Valley. To retain vibrancy of crisp Sauvignon Blanc characters, Marlborough Cuvee is vinified in temperature controlled fermenters and treated to a cold rest, off lees for a period of several months, permitting the fullness of palate flavours and aromatic complexity to open up and evolve.
