Tablelands, Martinborough, New Zealand
The Tablelands Wine Company was born in the heart of the Big Apple back in January of 2009. Once New Yorkers had a taste there was no stopping the demand that followed. They are now in over 400 accounts in the New York area being poured at top establishments such as Megu Japanese, Blue Ribbon,Lure, Soho House, Saxon and Parole to name a few. Their philosophy however is 'Wine to the People' and this is evident with Tablelands being enjoyed in a wide variety of all accounts in the New York Area. Cheers!

What makes Tablelands different? Both Simon and Magnus have family wine in their DNA with a combined 20 years of in depth experience in the US market. Tablelands is named after the Riddiford ancestral home in Martinborough. That combination of New Zealand roots and US expertise gives the Tablelands wine company an edge when communicating to customers in the market. Sophisticated with charming kiwi authenticity.

Martinborough

View all wine

Part of the Wairarapa region in the southern end of the country’s North Island, Martinborough is a bucolic appellation full of artisan, lifestyle wine producers. Above all else, their goals are to tend vineyards for low yields and create wines of supreme quality. Pinot noir is the main grape variety here, occupying over half of the land under vine.

Comparing topography, climate and soils, the region is nearly identical to Marlborough except that it produces top quality reds on the regular.

Sauvignon Blanc

View all wine

A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. However, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and here is most important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand, California, Australia and parts of northeastern Italy. Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon blanc.

In the Glass

From its homeland In Bordeaux, winemakers prefer to blend it with Sémillon to produce a softer, richer style. In the Loire Valley, it expresses citrus, flint and smoky flavors, especially from in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. Marlborough, New Zealand often produces a pungent and racy version, often reminiscent of cut grass, gooseberry and grapefruit. California produces fruity and rich oak-aged versions as well as snappy and fresh, Sauvignon blancs, which never see any oak.

Perfect Pairings

The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor lends it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood and mild Asian cuisine. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like artichokes or asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it can be paired with more complex seafood and chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secret

Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is the 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 (an herbaceous aromatic compound) inherent to each member of the family.
