Bishops Leap Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Bishops Leap Sauvignon Blanc is made by Saint Clair and is from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. It is typical of most New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's in terms of it's grapefruit characteristics. The thing that seperates Bishop Leap Sauvignon from most other Marlborough Sauvignon is the combination of passion fruit, lychees and gentle herbacious undertones making it a wonderful wine to have with anything spicy or just as a great everyday drinking wine. Bishops Leap is also superb when served with pan fried sea bass or deep fried whitebait. 

Neal and Judy Ibbotson were one of the original pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry They first planted vineyards in the Wairau valley in 1978 and then established the Saint Clair Estate in 1994. They now own over 100 hectares of vineyards in six different Marlborough locations. These locations were specifically selected for their ability to produce top quality grapes and for the unique terroir.

Neal began to combine his extensive knowledge of viticulture with the blazing talent of Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark. The combination proven to be a huge success and Saint Clair has enjoyed massive success locally and internationally. This is displayed in the many Trophies and Gold medals won by this remarkable winery. Saint Clair is a name that has become internationally recognised as a producer of world class wines.

Vinification
The grapes are pressed with minimal skin contact. The juice is cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and zing.

Viticulture
Grapes use in the production of this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc are carefully selected from sites in the Southern Wairau valleys. The fruit was harvested at night to ensure optimum flavour development and ripeness.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Bishops Leap Marlborough Sauvignon is an ideal wine with fresh seafood or white meat. This wine is also delightful with Asian cuisine such as Thai or anything made using chillies. This delicious white wine is also a fantastic wine to just enjoy on it's own as the balance of fruit and acidity are just right. This has to be one of the best Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc we sell in terms of value for money.

DandyDon1903 | 22/11/2016
Fantastic wine, complimented our fish dishes perfectly. Notes of passion fruit and gooseberry with a hint of herbs, our friends thoroughly enjoyed this wine too. Fantastic price for a great wine.

Thanks Kevin.

5 5 5 5 5 | Perfect for any occasion
maxyd84 | 26/04/2013
On this occasion it was a Wednesday evening and with the warmer weather on its way it was a perfect time to have a drop with the evening meal.

Our food was chicken breast stuffed with red pesto and phily cheese wrapped in bacon with green vegetables and sweet potato. The wine tasted lovely without the food but really completed the whole meal.

I am a fan of sauvignon blanc and this ticks all of the boxes. I am no expert but I would summarise it as a very sociable drink which can really dress up a meal like ours above. A great price for such a nice tasting wine.

Thanks Wineman Kev for recommending.
