A handful of Kiwi estates can claim to have been pioneers of certain grapes. For Sauvignon Blanc that award goes to Matua Valley Wines, who were first off the blocks, beginning in 1973. Shingle Peak is their gorgeously aromatic fruity Sauvignon.

"From the first estate to plant Sauvignon in New Zealand, a not-to-be-missed old-vine original"
Shingle Peak Reserve is a special selection of Sauvignon from Matua Valley Wines. This groundbreaking estate was started in 1973 by brothers Ross and Bill Spence, in an old tin shed in the heart of the Marlborough region. They quickly gained a reputation for innovative, medal winning wines and it was their Sauvignon Blanc that helped inspire Marlborough's Sauvignon revolution in subsequent decades. Today, the estate is as pristine and modern as any, producing a wide range of distinctive, award winning red and white wines, enjoyed internationally. This is a classic Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, with lemon, bell pepper and grassy notes and ripe passion fruit and pineapple flavours. Enjoy with fish and chips, mussels, asparagus or a salade niçoise.
