This clean and crisp Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh with great acidity and a long, refreshing finish. A bit fuller in style than you might expect for the price point. An outstanding effort to buy any month of the year!!
"Benjamin de Rothschild noted that the Compagnie Vinicole's portfolio was short on white wines. He first considered increasing the production of Merle Blanc at ChÃ¢teau Clarke or branching out to other prestigious French regions, such as Burgundy or the Loire. But his taste for adventure, combined with the Compagnie Vinicole's pioneering spirit, could not be suppressed: the Baron ultimately decided to explore a new part of the world, New Zealand. This country, and especially the Marlborough wine region, offers remarkable conditions for growing sauvignon blanc.
In 2012, the Compagnie Vinicole acquired a 24-hectare vineyard on the Ripaura site in the heart of Marlborough. To help get the project off the ground, Benjamin de Rothschild decided to work with New Zealand's Peabody family, which already owned a top-notch winery, Craggy Range. The estate's wines draw heavily on local know-how and facilities, but they also benefit from the expertise of the Compagnie Vinicole team. This winning combination has enabled Rimapere's white wines to quickly achieve a high level of quality and international acclaim. Rimapere means "five arrows" in Maori, a reference to the symbol of the Rothschild family.
Marlborough, located in the north-eastern corner of South Island, accounts for 62% of all of New Zealand's grape-growing land. The fertile region enjoys a temperate climate, which is why it is the capital of wine production in New Zealand. The Wairau River flows into the plains from the east, in the centre of which lies Blenheim, the region's biggest city. The Rimapere vineyard comprises 24 hectares of vines that are ideally situated on the prestigious Rapaura site, where the alluvial soil is mainly made of pebbles and gravel. Sauvignon bl anc is grown on 20 hectares (first vintage: 2012) and four hectares are planted with pinot noir. " - Winery
