Kukupa Sauvignon Blanc comes from the prized coastal vineyards at Dillons Point in north Marlborough. Named after the bird that eats fermenting fruit becoming a bit tipsy. Fresh and crisp with peach and citrus fruit and good weight.
New Zealand’s Kukupa (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae) enjoys a reputation for over indulging on fermenting berries, rendering it somewhat incapable of flight. It is the bon viveur of the avian world.
All of the fruit comes from the single Kerseley estate vineyard from vines planted between 1991 and 2008. Grown on a trellis system, the vineyards are in the Dillons point area around half a mile from the sea. No tricks here, just a youthful and exquisite Sauvignon Blanc with prominent asparagus, mature peach and exotic fruit notes on the nose. Fresh and deliciously crisp with excellent natural acidity and a long citric and peach aftertaste as well as a rounded body and good structure.
