Sacred Hill is a beautiful winery to visit. It is located in the low-lying hills to the west of Napier - about 20 minutes by car. It is perfect for a picnic on a warm summer's day. Owned by the Mason family, Sacred Hill was born in the mid-1980s after more than a century of pastoral farming in the area. Pasture made way for grapevines; winery buildings replaced farm sheds; conversations about grape varieties replaced talk of livestock.
Marlborough is a spectacular convergence of climate, contours and soil types, celebrated as one of the premium wine regions of the world. Sacred Hill's vineyards are in prime positions across the region, making the most of diverse soil types and micro-climates to create distinctive, delicious wines.
Sauvignon is a relatively robust, vigorous vine adapting readily to all kinds of growing environments. Its early ripening period allows it to grow in relatively cool climates while its naturally high acidity allows it to retain a level of freshness even in warmer regions. However, a cooler terroir with persistent bright sunshine and a dry harvest period achieves the true, forward zing that best characterizes Sauvignon Blanc wine.

Very pleasant wine, very easy drinking.
Clean and crisp, pairs well with fish Which is great as I love fish, so gives an excuse to crack open a bottle.
