2023 Estate Series

Let's get real. No one does SauvyB like Marlborough. It's world famous! We've stuck to the tradition of making a simply beautiful Marlborough SauvyB right here. No BS, just the best! Like fish n' chips on a rainy Sunday, nana's bikkies, or a $10 roast at the local RSA, this is a class example of a good kiwi wine that you can absolutely count on to bring you comfort and joy.

The real deal

We've taken the BS outta SB. Our founder Andrew Bailey is not interested in bourgeois posturing when it comes to winemaking. “Good wine for good times” as he puts it. That’s why the label gets straight to the point – “Sauvignon Blanc” in big, bold typo. 100% Marlborough 'SauvyB' in fact, just how we like it.

"Rich, ripe and tangy sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, crunchy green capsicum and gooseberry flavours. A backbone of fruity acidity gives the wine a mouth-watering freshness."

Bob Campbell, The Real Review.


The fruit for our Estate Series Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from our vineyards in the Wairau and Waihopai Valleys. Harvested in the cool of the night then cool fermented with selected yeasts strains to enhance varietal characteristics. Bottled early to capture the true essence of Marlborough: fruit freshness and zing!
