Hilarious comedian, consummate talk show host, and now world class winemaker, Graham Norton’s latest hit is his own Sauvignon Blanc made in collaboration with Invivo Wines in the Marlborough region of New Zealand.
Graham has been making wine in collaboration with Invivo Wines of New Zealand since 2014. His 2015 Sauvignon Blanc sold out (all 400,000 bottles it). Now he’s back with his 2016 blend and it promises to be just as fresh and vibrant. If you like an easy drinking white wine, you’ll love Graham Norton’s Own Sauvignon Blanc by Invivo 2016. I just recently had my first taste and found it to be a perfect sipper for a sunny day.
Graham’s not simply slapping his name on a label either. He personally blended the 2016 in his home county, Bantry House in County Cork, Ireland. Invivo co-founder, Tim Lightbourne and winemaker Rob Cameron travelled more than 20,000 kilometers to Norton’s summer home with six distinctive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc pressings to be blended.
According to Invivo’s Chief Winemaker, Rob Cameron:
Graham has a highly tuned palate and makes a superb winemaker. We’ve been blown away by the demand for this wine and can’t wait to share our prized new vintage with the UK and Ireland.
In teaming up with Invivo, Graham picked an excellent winery to work with too.
In 2015, Invivo were the first New Zealand winery to equity crowdfund offering the New Zealand public shares in the company. They set a southern hemisphere equity crowdfunding record by raising $2 million in eight days ($2 million is the maximum allowed to raise under NZ legislation). In February 2016, Invivo took over the historic Te Kauwhata winery, one of New Zealand’s oldest wineries established in 1902 by the NZ government. Invivo has won over 140 medals and five trophies including World’s Best Sauvignon Blanc since their first wine on 2008.
Impressed? Thirsty? Graham and the folks at Invivo have kindly set aside a case of the 2016 for me to share with one lucky reader. Yep, that’s right. An entire case. Thanks guys!
