Established in 1978, the Rose family estate vineyards are situated on the banks of the Wairau River (pronounced "why-raow"). Pioneers in the Marlborough region, the Roses' were able to select the best sites for their vineyards, providing consumers with a range of elegant wines that characteristically express the essence of the terroir. The 2014 Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from 5 family vineyards across the Marlborough region. The vineyards for this wine are located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley. Grapes from this area produce wines with tropical spectrum flavors with notes of pink grapefruit, passionfruit and gooseberry.

Mouthwateringly juicy, with lime, papaya and fresh-cut grass notes, leading to a crisp green apple finish. Drink now. 36,667 cases made.

The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is intensely scented of fresh limes, lemon zest, mown grass and green peppers with a hint of chalk dust. Light to medium-bodied, it offers that classic New Zealand Savvy electric intensity with racy acid and a long, linear finish.

For one of the region's pioneers, this medium-bodied wine is somewhat underwhelming. The core grapefruit flavors suffer from pervasive hints of green onion that seemingly grow in influence from nose to palate to finish.
