Following the phenomenal global success of the first two vintages of Invivo X, SJP Sauvignon Blanc, Sarah Jessica Parker and Invivo co-founders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron have made their 2021 third release together, virtually. New York-based Sarah Jessica was dialled in with
Tim and Rob in from their winery in Te Kauwhata, New Zealand to create and sign off their latest blend, over a two-hour Zoom chat.
Aromas of lifted, ripe tropical fruit among a mingling of citrus peel, with some exotic guava in the background. The delicate oak influence underpins the fruit on the nose and in the palate gives an immediate softness and accessibility. This swiftly fills the mouth and the balanced acid structure emerges through the folds of supple savoury and sweet fruit characters. The finish is long and, delicious.
95 points, 5 stars, Sam Kim’s Wine Orbit: “Brilliantly fruited and intensely aromatic, showing passionfruit, kiwifruit, kaffir lime and white floral aromas on the nose, leading to an immensely appealing palate that’s filled with vibrant fruit flavours combined with juicy acidity, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2024.” September 2021

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.
