Bishops Leap Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Please take note, due to stock issues of many New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, there is a maximum order of a dozen bottles of this wine to preseve continuity of supply to all clients.

Bishops Leap Sauvignon Blanc is made by Saint Clair and is from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. It is typical of most New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's in terms of its grapefruit characteristics. The thing that separates Bishop Leap Sauvignon from most other Marlborough Sauvignon is the combination of passion fruit, lychees and gentle herbaceous undertones making it a wonderful wine to have with anything spicy or just as great everyday drinking wine. Bishops Leap is also superb when served with pan-fried sea bass or deep-fried whitebait.

Neal and Judy Ibbotson were one of the original pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry They first planted vineyards in the Wairau Valley in 1978 and then established the Saint Clair Estate in 1994. They now own over 100 hectares of vineyards in six different Marlborough locations. These locations were specifically selected for their ability to produce top-quality grapes and for the unique terroir.

Neal began to combine his extensive knowledge of viticulture with the blazing talent of Hamish Clark. This combination has become a huge success and Saint Clair has enjoyed massive success locally and internationally. This is displayed in the many Trophies and Gold medals won by this remarkable winery. Saint Clair is a name that has become internationally recognised as a producer of world-class wines.

Vinification
The grapes are pressed with minimal skin contact. The juice is cool-fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and zing.

Viticulture
Grapes used in the production of this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc are carefully selected from sites in the Southern Wairau valleys. The fruit was harvested at night to ensure optimum flavour development and ripeness.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Bishops Leap Marlborough Sauvignon is an ideal wine with fresh seafood or white meat. This wine is also delightful with Asian cuisine such as Thai or anything made using chillies. This delicious white wine is also a fantastic wine to just enjoy on it's own as the balance of fruit and acidity are just right. This has to be one of the best Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc we sell in terms of value for money.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
