Winemaker Notes

A nice combination of the power of our 2005 Sauvignon Blanc and the elegance of the 2006. This 2007 vintage is possibly the best of all three. Bouquet: An elegant blend of tropical overtones, passionfruit, gooseberries, kiwifruit with hints of herbal notes (French tarragon). Palate: Full palate weight with balanced structure and a crisp, clean finish. Intense flavours of pineapple, grapefruit, white peach and gooseberry.

Starts off with a minerally, slightly fumé-style note, then adds herbal and leafy notes and white grapefruit flavors. From New Zealand's first carbon-neutral winery, this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc is appealingly long, crisp and clean on the finish. — Wine Enthusiast 09/08

Established in 1988 by a group of local winegrowers, Grove Mill crafts wines that reflect the best of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley with minimal environmental impact. Their winemaking practices – from establishing a wetland which protects southern bell frogs to its landmark 2006 carbon-neutral certification – protect the nearby Wairau River, which is at the heart of Marlborough’s largest sub-region.  

Since their first plantings in 1988 Grove Mill has continued to pioneer vineyard management techniques. They utilize natural and sensitive vineyard practices to enhance the regional character of our wines, which foster and further develop the unique Grove Mill style. 

In 2017 winemaker Greg Lane joined Grove Mill, and was subsequently named New Zealand Young Winemaker of the Year in 2018. Greg continues to drive and define the style of Grove Mill’s wines – balanced, modern styles of Marlborough wine that give a clear representation of our fantastic vineyard sites. 

To produce a Sauvignon Blanc that reflects the Wairau’s diversity of terroirs, they source fruit from multiple home vineyard and premier sites throughout the valley floor and foothills. The resulting spectrum of flavors creates a truly multi-dimensional expression of the Wairau: pure, tropical and passion fruit flavors and aromas with a weighty, layered palate and long, generous finish. These are wines to enjoy today, from a place Grove Mill is safeguarding for future generations.

New Zealand

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
