Winemaker Notes

Starborough Sauvignon Blanc has layers of citrus and tropical fruit with hints of fresh green characters, which make the wine a true expression of the Marlborough region. Flavors of passion fruit, guava and kiwi layered over a citrus framework culminate in a crisp, approachable palate.

Wine Enthusiast
With almost a quarter-million cases imported, this wine will provide a solid, medium-weight introduction to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Herb and cut-grass notes accent the fig and melon fruit, backstopped by a lime-ridden finish.

Starborough, New Zealand
New Zealand's South Island is home to the stellar Marlborough growing region, producer of some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc. They have plenty of time to soak up the heady atmosphere of sunlit mountains, fleecy clouds and pure blue skies. The unhurried pace enables Starborough™ wine to develop rich layers of character, so it can be as flavorful as it is crisp and refreshing.

Perhaps that's why Starborough™ Sauvignon Blanc stands out—the way in which it evokes the subtle flavor of New Zealand's natural beauty. It's a sophisticated taste that's easy to like.

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.
