A Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Discovery Tasting with Oz Clarke

Marlborough put New Zealand on the international wine stage with its exquisite Sauvignon Blanc in the 1980s. Oz Clarke was at the forefront of introducing the UK to these fresh, bright delicious wines and on 8th February he will lead you through a virtual tasting of a selection of six of his favourites and will be talking to the winemakers behind each.

A combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines. They have distinctive aromas, unique fruit characteristics and elegantly balanced acidity, with a purity of flavour and intensity that has earned them a global reputation as a phenomenal wine region.

Join Oz to discover what makes Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough such a firm favourite on every wine list.

Oz has carefully curated a selection of 6 wines to show off this special winemaking region. When you book for this virtual event you will receive a tasting pack of 6 x 100ml tasting samples and a Zoom link for online access so you can enjoy an evening of wine exploration with him.

Appellation Marlborough Wine was introduced and trademarked registered in 2018 to safeguard Marlborough Wine, initially focussed on Sauvignon Blanc, whose purity and flavour intensity has earned it a phenomenal global reputation. With this global demand, comes the proliferation of players and a range of quality expectations, which can put this hard-earned reputation at risk. AMW has been established to safeguard Marlborough wine for future generations to enjoy and provide assurance to consumers who seek wine of provenance, authenticity and integrity.

Any wine carrying the AMW icon is made from 100% Marlborough grapes, grown sustainably in Marlborough vineyards and bottled in New Zealand, guaranteeing every part of the production process from vine to bottle occurs under strict New Zealand regulations.

AMW is the only guarantee a wine is 100% pure Marlborough. Nothing else, no exceptions. Always look for the AMW icon on the label.
