Full of crunchy, zesty, herbaceous fruit

More elegant than many of its Marlborough competitors, this zesty white displays pronounced grapefruit aromatics with restrained mineral and flinty characters on the palate and a fresh finish.

Tasting notes

Ara's wines are produced from their sustainably managed vineyard in the most south-western corner of Marlborough and deliver an intense and unmistakable purity. More elegant than many of its Marlborough competitors, this wine displays pronounced grapefruit aromatics with restrained mineral and flinty characters on the palate and a crisp finish.


Clinging to the most south-westerly corner of Marlborough, New Zealand, is the picturesque 400 hectare Ara vineyard. Surrounded by rugged mountains and crossed by two icy rivers, Ara's extreme location presents unique winemaking challenges, but its cool climate and slightly elevated position also results in particularly pure and vibrant wines - including internationally award-winning Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Review

The ultimate sunshine aperitif, this is full of crunchy, zesty, herbaceous fruits. A bargain at this price

Perfect food match

Seafood and pea risotto with

Seafood and pea risotto

Light, fresh seafood such as crab, prawns and salmon are used in abundance in this dish. The creamy risotto is flavoursome and the added peas bring a crunch to the dish. The lovely rounded, fruit notes of the wine match perfectly to the seafood risotto and bring out the fresh flavours of the ingredients.
