Story

Story

Owned and produced by a French winery, Kia Ora (Welcome in Polynesian) aims to deliver great value in the world-famous style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Marlborough has a unique terroir that lends a unifying thread to all of its wines. But despite common misconceptions, the wines from this region at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island are anything but homogenous. With well-draining stony soils and a dry, sunny climate, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, which helps to preserve natural acidity in their fruit.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The region’s specialty, Sauvignon Blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass, and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. A fuller style with lots of gooseberries, guava, passion fruit and minerals. Yeasty notes and good depth and length.

Pale gold in color, this is a tasty, textural Sauvignon offering up a heady mix of fresh green herbs, lime leaf, green-apple and stone-fruit notes, all balanced by a mouthfeel that is both chalky and creamy. It punches above its weight. 7/1/2019
