Our New Zealand Buyer Dan loves to create new and exciting opportunities and after several trips and lengthy discussions with local growers he hit the jackpot with Mussel Pot. It’s a UK exclusive Sauvignon Blanc from a grower of enormous renown.
"Delightful. Perfect accompaniment to a summer’s day – slight fizz on the tongue and crisp flavours"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
At nearly 7 feet tall, John Walsh cuts a formidable figure. But his reputation as a grower of first class Sauvignon Blanc from top spot Dillons Point is bigger still. That’s why one of the most famous names in New Zealand wine buys most of his grapes every vintage. We can’t say who (non-disclosure agreements and all that) but needless to say their wine sells for hefty prices! Big John, however, has agreed to give you a taste of his legendary quality under the exclusive (and excellent value) UK Mussel Pot label. The wine goes beautifully with NZ green lipped mussels (or local equivalent) but is actually named after John’s favourite restaurant on the Marlborough Sounds. Enjoy this gooseberry, passion fruit, lime scented white well chilled.
