At Noble Grape, we pride ourselves on seeking the best wines and bargains. We have both with this excellent Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Thornbury 2022 Sauvignon is grown in the Awatere Valley, one of the sub-districts of Marlborough. The wines from this valley tend to be brighter and even more zippy than those of the Wairau River Valley. Thornbury is made drier than most, packed with lemon, herb, and mint flavours, with a hint of tropical fruit. If you love Marlborough Sauvignon, don't miss this bargain.

Brits have fallen in love with the wines of New Zealand. The affair probably has much to do with the colonial heritage, but it also has a great deal to do with the excellent, benchmark wines that are produced here. The story must begin with Sauvignon Blanc, but certainly doesn’t end there. Since the 1970s the region of Marlborough has become the go-to area, perhaps in the world, for bright, crystalline ‘Savs’ which gave the French something to think about. But now, it is becoming as equally famous for its Pinots, which are now beyond just being less expensive alternatives to Burgundy, instead showing regional characteristics, from the dark cherry and spice of Central Otago to the brawn and dried herbs of Martinborough.

A special mention goes to the Chardonnays of Kumeu River of Auckland, as these are some of the most remarkable wines from this variety in the Southern Hemisphere.
