New York style icon Sarah Jessica Parker was a Chardonnay fan originally ... until she discovered Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that is....
She fell in love with its clean vibrant fruit but wanted to add another dimension and achieve a bit more longevity. With a lengthy list of accolades to their winemaking prowess, and none more so than their Sauvignon Blanc success, the Invivo guys set about curating their best parcels from throughout Marlborough, and fired up the jet headed for NYC ( pre lockdown of course ).
A blend of five separate wines were carefully selected and a rigorous discussion was had about the textural and structural style SJP had in mind. With Sarah's preferred blend locked in, the boys carefully identified the portions that were suited to skin contact, some gentle blonde oak ageing ( untoasted barrels ), and three months of lees stirring. These subtle treatments adding texture, structure and a more rounded and multi dimensional wine.
And the results were undeniable! All that vibrant fresh clean fruit was still there, but it was more rounded and approachable. A unique style that really stood out from the crowd and impressed a lot of people!!
With no less than six glorious gold medals and some astounding rankings, this wine is certainly not the type of PR stunt we all thought it might be. With a winning combination of skilled winemaking, clever marketing, and a widely appealing brand ambassador, this is a wine that has it all.
And you only have to look at its success to date to see that. Along with its Six Gold Medals, it has also been awarded #66 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the World, and the 2nd best of all the NZ entries.
Its 95 point score and Gold Medal at The New World Wine Awards put it in their Top 50 wines overall too. And similarly the Gold Medal it received at the Sydney International Wine Competition was a Blue Gold medal, meaning it was in the top 10% of all wines judged.
Outstanding results for an outstanding wine.
After hearing all that it will probably come as no surprise then, to tell you that sales have been outstanding too. However, with the new 2020 vintage release hot on its heels, we have been charged with clearing the final couple of pallets left here in the NZ market.
Intensely aromatic with refreshing tropical notes, ripe citrus and a haunting honeysuckle sweetness. This wine transcends the usual single dimension of fruit intensity, with clever winemaking adding layers of texture and complexity rarely seen in our national treasure...she really has put the Sex in the Sauvy!
This wine has almost been as successful as SJP's hit TV Show, and now we wait till the next season is released. So get your share quick of this standout Sauvignon Blanc ... it truly has so much to offer with its fresh textural complexity that is so well suited to food, and equally tasty enjoyed on its own.
