New Zealand’s best-known wine region and its trademark varietal don a refined, elegant coat in this Sauvignon Blanc from Wairau River Estate, a family-run winery perched on the lush banks of the ice-blue river from which it takes its name. Generous and textural with pronounced tropicality and lifted florals, Wairau River’s 2020 vintage — awarded a gold medal at top Kiwi wine show The New World Wine Awards — expresses a lesser-seen, stonefruit-soaked side of the famously grassy New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Expect to find
Summer-perfect freshness, infused with mouthwatering lemon, intense passionfruit, succulent peach, and tangy grapefruit
The Wairau River Restaurant opened in 1991, right off the back of New Zealand’s launch to international wine stardom. Today, it features a menu peppered with fresh regional ingredients and is overseen by eldest Rose daughter Pip, with sister Caroline as Head Chef. Well worth a reservation.

Wairau River Estate
Coming up Roses in the heart of Marlborough
Through the heart of New Zealand’s most famous wine region flows the peaceful path of the Wairau River, the 170-kilometre-long waterway that serves as the lifeblood of Marlborough wine. In the river’s fertile surrounds, known as the Wairau Valley, Phil and Chris Rose helm a true family affair at the aptly named Wairau River Wines, where they’ve been growing grapes and cultivating their lush plot of land since 1978.
