This aromatic Sauvignon is a great introduction to New Zealand's newest star white wine region. An hour or so along the coast from Marlborough, Nelson is a stunningly beautiful area with a national park, and is home to many small, quality focused wineries. Its 2,400 hours of sunshine annually produce extremely ripe, flavoursome grapes.
Brightwater is from a tiny family estate our Buyer first visited in 2002, having noticed that famous Aussie wine writer James Halliday had reviewed their Sauvignon above Cloudy Bay. Their 2009 was also rated as 5 Stars by top Kiwi wine critic Bob Campbell MW. A classic match with goat's cheese, it's also just the ticket with seafood, especially oysters. Alternatively, enjoy as a refreshing glass on its own.
