Winemaker Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc offers aromas of grapefruit, mango, passionfruit and melon. On the palate, the wine's texture is smooth and inviting with classic Marlborough flavors including ripe bell pepper and tropical fruit. Crisp acidity rounds off an elegant structure.

Pairs perfectly with seafood, salads and lemon-vinaigrette dressings.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 94
Decanter

This is taut, zesty and well focused, with decent concentration of citrus and apple fruit. The wine is mostly fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks, but a small portion is barrel fermented to round out the edges and lend a slight nutty complexity to this powerful and driven Sauvignon Blanc.

JS 90
James Suckling
Some ripe, fleshy and soft peach and mango fruits on offer. A neat palate. Shows more restraint and less sweetness.
WS 89
Wine Spectator

White grapefruit, lime and lemon zest flavors are bright and refreshing, with terrific intensity and focus on the finish. An appealing note of passion fruit lingers. Drink now.

Spy Valley Learn More About Spy Valley Winery Video
The brand name Spy Valley is derived from the presence of a satellite communications monitoring station within a few kilometers of the winery. Situated on the sunny southern side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley, nestled on the terraces of the Omaka River are the vineyards of Johnson Estate. Established in 1993 by the Johnson family, Johnson Estate was one of the pioneering vineyard companies in the Marlborough sub-region and remains family-owned. Eight varieties of grapes grow over 380 acres of free-draining, stony soils producing exceptional fruit for Spy Valley Wines. In ten years, production has risen to place Spy Valley as one of Marlborough's leading family-owned companies. Youthful and exuberant wines are crafted using modern winemaking techniques by winemaker Paul Bougeois and his team.

Marlborough Wine

New Zealand

View all products

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.
