"Herbaceous, fruity, tropical and classic Marlborough SB scents. Fresh herbs mixed with passionfruit, grapefruit and green apple. A light green olive and gentle savoury note are easily contrasted with flavours of fresh fruits. Balanced and well made. drink now and through 2019."
Cameron Douglas MS
"A fabulously expressed sauvignon, the intensely aromatic bouquet shows grapefruit, red apple, lime zest and musky characters. The palate is juicy and powerful, and delivers bright fruit intensity and excellent varietal purity, brilliantly supported by mouth-watering acidity. The wine is immediate and vibrant, and offers excellent drinking. At its best: now to 2020. July 2017"

2017 Vintage summary – Don’t judge a book by its cover!

We at Invivo have officially proven that you don’t need sun and warmth to make great wines. I’m calling marketing now to issue a statement to the press. I reckon it should read something like this…
Invivo Wines creates delicious, lip smacking tropical juicy Sauvignon Blanc amongst rain and cold of 2017 Season..
Yes that’s right, Invivo Winemaker Rob Cameron says “…2017 harvest was just horrible, cold, wet, mushrooms in your raincoat kind of year but we dug deep, worked extra hard and have made some wines that will blow you away…”
Invivo Is now investigating potential vineyard options in traditionally unexplored grape growing regions such as the South Pole
