Cirro Wines Sauvignon Blanc 2019
- Light, aromatic
Welcome back Cirro! Another wonderful vintage of the wine that our mofos truly adore - and why wouldn’t you? Just when you thought you were bored of Marlborough sav blanc, Cirro came along. When you were craving something fresh and crisp - there it was. Now, the 2019 vintage is here.
The Cirro sav is bright and youthful, and unbelievably easy to pair with seafood and salads. Rather than overripe fruitiness, you get generous squeezes of lemon and lime, bunches of nettles and gooseberries, and a faint aromatic hint of fresh mint. Simply wonderful.
“Beautifully ripe and lifted, the inviting bouquet shows green rockmelon, crunchy apple, grapefruit and lemongrass notes, leading to a lively palate that is juicy and flavoursome. Up front and very tasty with lovely youthful flavours. At its best: now to 2021”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Known for their distinctively fresh, vibrant cool climate wines, Cirro is the brainchild of cool cat winemakers David Tyney and Richard Green - who when not making wine are playing in their band The Dead Parrots. Launching their first vintage in 2009, they have been awarded two Gold medals for their 2012 Sauvignon Blanc and 2010 Pinot Noir in the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards – one of the world’s leading wine competitions. Focused on transcending flavour and intensity, Tyney and Green aim to showcase the best of Marlborough through their classic regional wines.
Marlborough is the famous region that has rocketed NZ into the world wine scene. For good or for bad, the wine that hails from here is distinctive, exploding with aromatics and quality and balance are only improving. Located at the top of the South Island, there is no doubt that Marlborough is the epicentre of the New Zealand wine industry - a region synonymous with some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The distinctive conditions of Marlborough - warm, sunny days and cold nights allow winemakers to unleash the unique expressions of grape, not seen anywhere else in the world.
