Today's Six-Pack Special, the 2016 Opawa Sauvignon Blanc, has all the lush, bright fruit characters that you would expect from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (NZSB), but it also has its roots in a spectacular terroir that imparts dimension, texture, complexity and elegance. This is NZSB, elevated, and we are thrilled to be bringing this wine to you at such a great price!

Opawa first came to our attention two years ago when our wine buyer had the opportunity to meet the winemaker Brett Bermingham and tour the Opawa vineyards during a visit to the Marlbourough region of New Zealand. While the entire Opawa line-up was impressive, it was the Sauvignon Blanc that really popped out of the glass that afternoon. Recognizing an opportunity, John went to work with the importer to bring this wine back home. Well it took a little bit of time, but the 2016 Opawa Sauvignon Blance has finally arrived and it was worth the wait.  

The Opawa Sauvignon Blanc takes it name from the land from which it comes; The Opawa vineyard is located on the historic river bed of the old Opawa river. The Opawa river was fed from the Wairau river until the Wairau plains were developed for agriculture and flood protection measures were put in place, changing the course of the river and leaving part of the old river bed dry. The stony soils are ideally suited for grape vines but not much else! Water drains freely, which grapevines like, and heat is absorbed from the bright Marlborough sunshine during the day, to be radiated back onto the grapes at night. (winery notes) What results is a wine with seductive aromatics and ultra-ripe fruit flavors.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine rated it 91 points: "Pungent, leafy and loaded with passion fruit on the nose, this is green, but in a good way, balancing those notes with just enough pineapple and citrus flavors. For a medium-bodied wine, it shows remarkable creaminess on the palate.... Drink now." (3/1/2017)

One sip will give away the wine's origins from sun-and-heat-worshiping grapes. Heady aromatics of tropical and  citrus fruits lead to a generous palate of ruby red grapefruit and passion fruit flavors, with underlying notes of fresh herbs. This wine is brought into beautiful balance by bracing acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.  While it may be a bit chilly and rainy today, the sun will certainly come out tomorrow and a glass of this 2016 Opawa Sauvignon Blanc will be a great way to celebrate. Pick-up a six pack today... CHEERS!!
