OTU (pronounced o-two) is Otuwhero Estate and it’s named after the mighty Otuwhero River that runs through the lower valleys of Marlborough. This ancient river provides Otu with vineyards full of rich alluvial gravels and clay soils and along with its remote and rugged coastal setting it’s perfect for producing wines full of intense, ripe flavours! Then throw in a two time International Winemaker of the Year winner and you’re on to a good thing!

Jeff Clarke is the man and he started his winemaking career at Penfolds in Australia before spending 17 years at Montana wines down the road in Marlborough. He’s also spent time with Church Road in Hawke’s Bay, while respected UK wine journo and Master of Wine Tim Atkin named Jeff as one his top six winemakers globally!

This is their Otu Sauvignon Blanc from the 2023 vintage and boy oh boy what a wine for the money. Scoring 93/100 as well as a Top Value Award and a Top Rank Award with Master of Wine Bob Campbell. In fact, this wine was also selected in the prestigious AMW (Appellation Marlborough Wine) Annual Collection 2023 Top 12.

This is a selection of 12 of the finest Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc selected to showcase excellence from the region. It joins the likes of Dog Point, Astrolabe, Greywacke and Nautilus!

A classic lively, zesty, refreshing style Marlborough SauvyB full of passionfruit and lime zest flavours. Just what you want with some fresh kai moana or a summer salad!
