97 Points - Bob Campbell MW

From a low-yielding vineyard in the Waihopai Valley with clay-based soils and 17 year-old vines. 50% whole-bunches in the fermentation. Evocatively perfumed wine with savoury, fresh herb, violet, red rose, cherry and berry flavours supported by classy spicy oak. Dense and seamless with an impressively lengthy finish. Delicious wine.

Producer

Matt Thompson, International White Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine and Spirits Competition is no stranger to our wine buyer and owner Stuart, as their relationship goes back over a decade when Stuart first offered wines from New Zealand’s Saint Clair estate, for which Matt is still the consulting winemaker. Fast forward over forty vintages in vastly different wine regions around the world, and the time has come to launch Matt’s own wine range, Blank Canvas, which represents his journey as a winemaker. Matt’s background in science defines the parameters of his winemaking canvas, allowing creativity to flow within those blank bounds with brush and palette. Blank Canvas is about creating alternate styles of wine using exceptional varieties and unprecedented techniques.

Blank Canvas, Marlborough, New Zealand

Region

Buy Marlborough Wines

At the northern most tip of the southern island is New Zealand’s most famous region, Marlborough. A region that pioneered an entirely new style of wine and new methods of production, championing stainless steel and temperature controlled fermentation, the Marlborough sauvignon, with its racing acidity, bright, vibrant gooseberry, passionfruit and elderflower aromas took the world by storm when it burst on to the scene. Since then, Marlborough has managed to form a reputation that is not just based on one game changing grape variety, but has established its place on the world’s stage as a producer of not only premium sauvignon, but also of pinot Noir, chardonnay, riesling and many others, for example, Blank Canvas pinot noir was awarded a staggering 97 points from Bob Campbell MW (a score rarely achieved for pinot outside of Burgundy.)
