2012 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
FRENZY is a name inspired by the myriad, uncontrollable forces of nature that must fall into place in order to make great wine. It also connotes the numerous, vivid aromatic and flavor characteristics you will find in our New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Priced to offer exceptional value, FRENZY doesn’t compromise in its display of peach, grapefruit, lime, melon and fresh-cut grass characteristics, all enveloped in a brisk, refreshing acidity that will complement a wide range of foods. In just a few years, the success of this wine has exceeded our expectations and we are pleased to continue to craft this wine using high-quality Sauvignon Blanc that is highly expressive and an exceptional value.
FRENZY Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from selected vineyards located in New Zealand’s famous Marlborough region on the South Island, which is ideally suited to this varietal. Meticulous vineyard management and innovative winemaking combine to produce a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
The 2012 growing season was one of the coolest in Marlborough’s recent history, resulting in a smaller-than-normal crop of concentrated fruit. A warming trend in the fall ripened the grapes just in time, providing classic flavors and the crisp acidity for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned.
