Winemaker Notes

Pale straw appearance. A lifted rich aroma with tropical fruit notes of fig, guava, gooseberry, and passionfruit complemented by citrus zest florals and fresh mown grass.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WW 89
Wilfred Wong of
Very bright and astute, the 2014 Sacred Hill Sauvignon screams New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! Fresh and super frisky, a superior aperitif wine. Medium straw color; somewhat pungent, fresh grass and grapefruit, medium bodied, soft on the palate; dry, grapefruit peel; lively finish. (Tasted: September 24, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Sacred Hill, New Zealand
Sacred Hill Winery Image
Imported from New Zealand. Sacred Hill is located in Hawkes Bay, one of the most important quality growing regions in the country. Wine critic Hugh Johnson writes the conditions for viticulture in the Hawkes Bay "could hardly be better." Estate vineyards and selected growers supply ripe grapes that are carefully handled to capture freshness and retain true varietal character.

Marlborough Wine

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.
