Sarah Jessica Parker and Invivo’s sauvignon blanc collaboration has proved successful. The Invivo X SJP sauvignon blanc has come away as one of New Zealand’s Top 50 Wines at the annual New World Wine Awards.

The wine, which was tasted multiple times, and blindly by several judges, was described as having ripe peach aromas and zesty lemon, as well as having flavours of passionfruit and mango.

The top recognised sauvignon blanc came from Wairau River Wines, one of Marlborough’s original sauvignon blanc growers.
