Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough district, situated at the northern end of the South Island, instantly became a worldwide phenomenon in the 1990s.

Not only did Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc put New Zealand on the viticultural map, today, it is recognized as one of the iconic wine styles anywhere on the planet.
