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 region 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. A couple of commonalities always exist, however—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and is important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand and California, while Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon Blanc. High-quality Sauvignon Blanc is also produced in Washington State, Australia, and parts of northern Italy.

In the Glass

From its homeland in the Loire Valley, where citrus, flinty, and smoky flavors shine through in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume, to Marlborough, New Zealand, where it is pungent, racy, and “green” (think grass, leaves, gooseberries, and bell peppers) and tastes of grapefruit and passionfruit, Sauvignon Blanc has something to offer every wine drinker. In Bordeaux, it is typically blended with Sémillon and Muscadelle to produce a softer, richer style. In California, any of the aforementioned styles can be emulated.

Perfect Pairings

The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor—from bell pepper and cut grass to passionfruit, gooseberry, and ripe kiwi lend it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood, and mild Asian dishes. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like goat cheese and 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.
