Wairau River wines take their name from the river that runs through the heart of the Marlborough wine region.
The Rose family were pioneers in planting vines in the1970`s and after originally selling the grapes to other wineries (like Cloudy Bay) they launched their own label in the early 1990`s. Wairau River is one ofthe largest independent wine estates in Marlborough.
Classic expression of the dry, gooseberry, grass and passion fruit style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Clean and crisp it is bursting with minerality and white stone fruit flavours. Expressive on the palate, finishing with great length. This fashionable white wine is a benchmark by which NewWorld Sauvignons are judged. Awarded a Gold Medal at the prestigious Royal Hobart Show.
