Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc 2022

$56.00

This area’s cool climate is perfect for ripening high quality sauvignon blanc grapes and providing them with their typical lemon and grapefruit flavours, together with crisp acidity. The wines come from a single vineyard named Rimapere, meaning “five arrows» in the Maori language, pays a dual tribute to the Rothschild family’s emblem and the traditional local culture.

THE ARTIST

Some of you may not be aware that the world lost George Rodrigue on December 14, 2013. He was 69 years old. George, and his wife Wendy, have been dear friends of ours since 2005 when we initially commissioned George to paint a "blue dog" for our 2006 Amuse Bouche release. A native of Louisiana, George launched his painting career in the 1960s. He was not only a magnificent artist; George was a true community leader, philanthropist and advocate of arts education, inspiring a new generation of artists through the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts. Our hearts are heavy with George's absence. We are fortunate to be able to surround ourselves with so many vivid, vibrant reminders of his beautiful, whimsical outlook on life.
