  • Vineyard Profile

    • FRENZY Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from selected vineyards located in New Zealand’s famous Marlborough region, which is ideally suited to this varietal. The soil is composed of volcanic Greywacke stones and alluvial river silt.

  • Vintage Report

    • 2018 was an excellent growing year. A hotter than usual summer allowed us to harvest the grapes in pristine condition, resulting in fruity, concentrated wines. The harvest commenced late March and continued into April.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes were gently pressed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was conducted at low temperatures (12-14C) to retain the wines strong and appealing aromatics.

  • Technical Information

    • Alcohol: 12.5%
    • TA: 7.0
  • Tasting Notes

    • Intensely aromatic and lively with flavours of passionfruit and guava underpinned with aromas of fresh herbs and blackcurrant this is a great wine to enjoy as an aperitif, or match with seafoods. The palate is vibrant with zingy fruit that is balanced with a long, crisp mineral finish.



  • Frenzy Sauvignon Blanc – 2018 – Wine Enthusiast – 89 Points

    This is a balanced, food-friendly example of Marlborough Sauvignon succeeding despite a tough vintage. The nose is all about the citrus fruit: lemon-lime and grapefruit, with some soft grass and green herbal notes in the background. The mouthfeel is creamy but buoyed by bright, crisp acidity. Tangy citrus fruit lingers on the long finish.
