Te Pā - Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough

- Food Match: A great match with all seafood, particularly shellfish. The crisp flavours work well with fresh summer salads or soft goat cheese.
The MacDonald family can trace their ancestry and their home back 800 years to when the Maoris first settled the land which later became known as New Zealand.
They first planted vines in 2002/2003 since when they've grown considerably. From humble beginnings with 150 hectares at the Wairau Bar, they have expanded their footprint to over 500 hectares across the Marlborough region, including 100 hectares under vine in the highly sought-after Awatere Valley.
With high sunshine hours and diverse landscapes and soils coming together to create pristine fruits and strong varietal expression, Marlborough's wines are truly distinctive and instantly memorable. I'm proud to put my name to each and every bottle in this range.
Note that this is a single-estate Sauvignon Blanc produced and bottled in New Zealand at the winery.
