Hands-On Blending Process
Sarah Jessica Parker’s first ever wine was perfected in May when Invivo founders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron travelled to New York City to create her new Sauvignon Blanc. They brought samples of the 2019 vintage, harvested in April 2019. Over a three-hour session, Sarah Jessica and the Invivo team finalised the proportions from each vineyard.
Abundant notes of grapefruit, honeysuckle, passionfruit and citrus zest evolve from the glass. At first, the palate is expansive and leads with a wall of sweet-scented fruits and a soft – but balanced – acid spine. The mid-palate grows to another level, where supple phenolics offer a framework to further lift the fruit. The wine continues to unfold and is very long and persistent. This is a seriously drinkable Sauvignon Blanc that will continue to
develop for up to seven years.

91 points, Beverage Dynamics: “Blended by fashionista, entrepreneur and wine-lover Sarah Jessica Parker, this Marlborough wine pops on the palate with refreshing flavors of grapefruit, gooseberry, key lime, kiwi and passion fruit. The acid is nicely balanced with the concentrated weight of the wine.”
“Succulent and refreshing, with Key lime, preserved ginger and green apple candy flavors that are intense and focused. Reveals a hint of toasted green tea on the juicy finish. Drink now.” Wine Spectator
“This is fabulously fruited and instantly appealing on the nose showing passionfruit, kiwifruit, nectarine and lime zest characters with a gorgeous touch of musky complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and brilliant focus. It is deliciously expressed and texturally delightful, making it hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2022.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Aimed principally at the US market, the debut 2019 vintage (****½) is a good buy. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and lively, with good weight, delicacy and intensity of passionfruit/lime flavours. An elegant, tightly structured wine, it is very harmonious, with balanced acidity and a long, dry finish” Michael Cooper

A Signature Label Style:
As a passionately creative person, Sarah Jessica has naturally been instrumental in both naming the wine and designing the label. The X and the comma directly after it is an intentional and personal touch, referencing her signature email and Instagram post
signoff: “X, SJ.”
Sarah Jessica also hand-painted the X on the original label and found the teal paint to match the exact shade of one of her favorite satin shoe colorways, “Hamilton”, from her SJP Collection label.
