\"The 2007 vintage has provided us with excellent material with which to craft our signature Sauvignon Blanc. Our continued exploration of new terroirs within Marlborough has given us a greater than ever palette of aromas and flavours to work with. Marlborough continues to be one of the most exciting places in the world to grow grapes and each year we relish the challenge of harnessing nature's brilliance.\"
When the first growers planted grapes in Marlborough in the 1970s (there is evidence of plantings as early as 1870s), it is unlikely they would have foreseen the extent of the growth and fame that the region’s wine industry would achieve, based upon a single varietal called Sauvignon Blanc. The distinctive pungency and zest fruit flavours of the first Marlborough wines, in particular Sauvignon Blanc, captured the imagination of the country's winemakers as well as international wine commentators and consumers and sparked an unparalleled boom in vineyard development. Worldwide interest in Marlborough wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, has continued to fuel that regional wine boom.
