Description

New Zealand's Zephyr select the grapes for their Sauvignon Blanc from the Kerseley Estate Single Vineyard in Dillon's Point, Marlborough. Harvested whilst cold, and quickly pressed off skins with free run juice kept separate, this then undergoes a cool ferment with selected Blanc yeasts to ensure the wines are true to the vineyard expression. 

Pale straw with green hues in colour, the tight, concentrated nose shows fresh gooseberries, ginger, green apple and highlights of lime. All interwoven on the soft, harmonious, citrus focused palate with quenching acidity and varietal elegance. Try with scallops, summer salads, Thai dishes, prosciutto and soft goats cheeses.

Zephyr is run by the fourth generation of the Glover family, Ben, who humbly refres to himself as the janitor. Their vineyards were planted in 1985 by the meandering Opawa River in the renowned Marlborough sub-region of Dillon's Point. Zephyr's aromatic white wines (Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Riesling) have an outstanding reputation, being compared to premium European appellations such as Graves. All the wines will have organic certification from the 2020 vintage.

Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
