New Zealand is well-known around the world for excellent wines. The variety of climates as well as the rich soil provide fertile grounds for grapes. New Zealand is most famous for its Sauvignon Blanc as this grape grows best in cooler climates. Edmond de Rothschild vineyards take advantage of the climate here to produce an excellent, acidic Sauvignon Blanc.
Rimapere Sauvingnon Blanc is a beautiful wine that showcases the full-bodied Sav Blancs that New Zealand is famous for. A bold wine that promotes strong acidity, this wine is the perfect summer wine. To the eye: pale straw yellow; clean, but no opaque. On the nose: strong notes of citrus and tropical fruits. On the palate: Citrus and tropical fruits, passionfruit, and a slight oakiness from the barrels.
This wonderful wine works well on its own on a summer’s afternoon. It also works well accompanying a cheese platter. The acidity and full-bodiedness of the wine helps to accentuate the strength of the cheeses.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
