Omaka Springs Sauvignon Blanc
Fresh and vibrant. Rich grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors combine with more herbaceous notes from the addition of Semillon. This wine is an excellent example of the Sauvignon Blanc that the Marlborough is famous for.

Omaka Springs Estates is a family business owned by Geoff and Robina Jensen. The vineyards consist of 178 acres that lie across the Omaka Valley in the heart of Marlborough’s wine growing area. The first vines were planted in 1989 and further developed when Omaka Springs Estates were established in 1992. Winemaker Ian Marchant has been with Omaka Springs since 1997.
The sustainable winemakers at Omaka Springs Estates produce cool climate varietal grapes. These grapes are used to make medal winning wines at the on-site Omaka Springs Estates Ltd winery, where the aim - and, indeed, the philosophy - is to make only high quality wines at affordable prices.
In 1990, seeking a location similar to Northern Portugal, Provence or Tuscany, the Jensens established their first olive grove near Nelson. In 1992, Geoff and Robina moved the olive grove to a site alongside a newly purchased 40 acre vineyard in the picturesque Omaka Valley.
This wine is a blend of 98.5% Sauvignon Blanc and 1.5% Semillon. It's aged 100% in stainless steel.
