Overview

Ten Sisters is sourced from the Marlborough subregion called the Southern Valleys. Its soil originated from glacial outwash and is primarily loess (fine windblown soil derived from glacial deposits). Less extensively worked by the river system than more northern Marlborough subregions, the Southern Valleys’ soil has significant amounts of gravel and clay. While the Wairau River moderates the viticultural climate of the more northern subregions, cold air descends from the mountains into the Southern Valleys to create a cooler climate that leads to later ripening and more vibrant flavours.

Expert Reviews

“Mellow, fruity, and flavoursome sauvignon blanc with passion fruit, nectarine, and orange blossom flavours together with a suggestion of nutty lees character. Appealing wine in a deliciously drinkable style.” -- 92 points (excellent) and 4 stars Bob Campbell, MW

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc has a delightfully fragrant and complex bouquet with underlying citrus aromas.

Palate

The palate is crisp and lively, its elegant layers hinting of tropical fruit. The finish is long and well-balanced. The Sauvignon Blanc is given extended lees contact to create complexity, weight on the palate, and aging potential, and to bring out fruit flavours.

Food Matching

This Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with seafood, chicken, pork, salads, and Asian food.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Tons of green apple, gooseberry and passionfruit on the nose. A touch of brambles lending some complexity.

Comes through very fresh on the palate. Crisp gooseberry, passionfruit and pineapple are abound on the palate.

Have as aperitif with cheese and dips.

Our Wine

Ten Sisters has an extraordinary story — it is named after the ten King daughters, who have one brother. The King family's ancestors were among the first settlers in southern New Zealand. Three generations of the family have worked for Ten Sisters.

We produce about 4,000 cases of sauvignon blanc annually; some other Marlborough brands are 100 times that size. Our sauvignon blanc is sourced from a single vineyard, which gives Ten Sisters a rare purity of flavors.

Our vineyards are certified as sustainable too. As a family-owned brand, we focus on quality, with vines kept at appropriate yield to produce the best grapes. Leaves are plucked by hand for optimal sun exposure of the fruit.
