Jackson Estate embodies the very best of Marlborough New Zealand, the essence of Sauvignon Blanc. Jackson Estate is a special place, a testament to the vision and determination of the Stichbury&Jackson families who have farmed the land on the Wairau River plain at Jacksons Road for more than 160 years. Since planting our pioneering Sauvignon Blanc vineyards three decades ago, time, tide and fortune have smiled on Jackson Estate, and the unparalleled affinity between Marlborough and Sauvignon Blanc has been spectacularly realised. The acclaim Jackson Estate Sauvignon Blanc generates is based entirely on the merit of our mature, cool climate vineyards. Over twenty parcels of Sauvignon Blanc are made separately at our state of the art Marlborough winery, then blended to achieve Jackson Estate's style; distinctive aromatics, intensely flavoured and lively fruit, refreshingly crisp acidity and a long flavoursome finish. Named for owner and founder John 'Stich' Stichbury, this 2008 vintage celebrates 20 years of grape growing in Marlborough.
