The Grape Whisperer Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand white wine with citrus and boxwood aroma. The taste is fresh and smooth. Delicious as an aperitif but also very suitable with fish dishes or asparagus dishes.
Nice white wine from New Zealand
Whether you 'farm' in New Zealand or, for example, in the Loire, making quality wine comes at a certain cost. The price difference with the base wines from a particular wine region is mainly due to the limitation of the yield in the vineyard and the amount of attention that the winemaker gives to his vines. But sometimes there is only a small market for the very best quality. We notice this at Clos Marguerite.
This is the producer of one of the finest sauvignon blancs in Marlborough, but with a price tag of 16 euros. This makes it not a runner in our range.
That is why we asked owner Charles van Hove if he might know a fellow producer who offers the same type of wine with entry-level quality. He answered that he wanted to work on this himself.
Charles decided to treat some plots with young vines differently and to allow a higher yield. He achieves this through, among other things, less severe winter pruning - so more fruit-bearing buds - and a dosed irrigation technique. The result: a lower cost price and more commercial opportunities. Yet here too you can taste the class of the winemaker: expressive, fresh-dry and flawless.
Why the name The Grape Whisperer? Charles van Hove is a passionate winemaker who realizes that the quality of wine is decided in the vineyard. That is where it has to happen and that may well be whispered!
