The Grape Whisperer Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand white wine with the aroma of citrus and boxwood. The taste is fresh and soft. Delicious as an aperitif but also very suitable with fish dishes or asparagus dishes.
Beautiful white wine from New Zealand
Whether you 'farm' in New Zealand or, for example, in the Loire: making quality wine has 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 grape 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 most beautiful sauvignon blancs of 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 whether he knows a colleague producer who offers the same type of wine with entry-level quality. He replied that he wanted to work on this himself.
Charles decided to rearrange some plots with young grape vines and allow higher yields. He achieves this, among other things, by a 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 you can also taste the class of the winemaker: expressively fresh dry and flawless.
Why the name The Grape Whisperer? Charles van Hove is a passionate wine man who realizes that the quality of wine is decided in the vineyard. That's where it has to happen and that may well be whispered!
