The name Zephyr characterises the prevailing wind that complements Marlborough’s unique ripening season. Zephyr wines embrace the dynamic spirit of the Glover family and the lively aromatics of the estate vineyards. The Glover family vineyards, planted in 1985 alongside the meandering Opawa River, have inspired the family’s passion for wine.
'If I had to choose just one Kiwi Sauvignon at the moment, it would be the harmonious, beautifully balanced, Zephyr Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough."

#2 in Top 10 - Earthy, broom flower florals give this dry wine a slightly 'sauvage' dimension. In the mouth, the racy acids take you on a great ride through colourful splashes of citrus and apple. It was made by winemaker Ben Glover, who also had a hand in our eighth-placed riesling.
