Invivo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

If we were mixologists (which we kind of are really) here’s how you would describe our 2016 Invivo Sauvignon blanc. In a bottle add 1-part lime juice, add another part passionfruit pulp, the zest of a mandarin and a few drops of lemon bitters. Mix with a dash of sweetness and you’re there! (no umbrellas required)
Serve chilled with good friends and fresh, raw seafood.

Reviews

“This full-flavoured Sauvignon offers fabulous aromas of passionfruit, musk, mandarin and lime zest characters. Beautifully ripe and richly expressed, the palate delivers excellent vibrancy and intensity, leading to a immensely appealing, delicious finish. A real crowd-pleaser. At its best: now to 2019."
Wine Orbit
"Punchy and intensely varietal in its youth, this is a medium to full-bodied wine with incisive melon, gooseberry, capsicum and lime flavours, dry, appetisingly crisp and lasting."

Winemaking

2016 was a pretty big year for us as we stretch our legs in our new Winery in Te Kauwhata so it was like moving into a new (old) house! You can imagine we had all the hassles that comes with this, you know like getting the power hooked up, getting phone line and internet, can we get fibre? And can I get Netflix etc? Does the beer fridge get cold enough? All the important stuff.
We acquired a winemaker along the way too, Alan Gregory, Alan’s from Hamilton. Rob and Alan have been flatties in the new winery for a while now and are very proud to release our 2016 Invivo Sauvignon Blanc.
2016 was a very nice year for Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough with warm temperatures and rain and at the right times. The warm year has produced generous (like us) wines with yummy tropical flavors that we think you’ll love…
