Wine Spectator: Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough X, Sarah Jessica Parker 2021
Review: Juicy and incredibly drinkable, with ripe apricot, candied ginger, melon and aromatic citrus zest highlights on a fleshy frame. Features a hint of honeysuckle that lingers on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 55,000 cases made, 35,000 cases imported. – MaryAnn Worobiec
The new 2021 vintage release of Invivo X, SJP Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough has already been awarded 90 points by USA critic James Suckling, and comes hot off the heels of a successful second (2020) and first vintage (2019) release.
More than just a ‘celebrity wine’, Invivo X, SJP has become an export success. Sales of Invivo X, SJP doubled in 2021 and the wines are now available in sixteen countries including New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Japan, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Taiwan, Ukraine, with Sweden and Norway most recently choosing to import the wine following its global hype.
Our co-founder, Tim Lightbourne comments “To receive our highest rating yet from Wine Spectator is fantastic and we’re humbled by the accolades received. Together with Sarah Jessica, we’ve developed a style of Sauvignon Blanc that is soft with a subtle oak influence. While it has some classic flavours of ripe citrus, tropical fruits, it has a hint of something savoury that offers something different to the breadth of Sauvignon Blancs on the market. We’re looking forward to driving further growth in export markets in 2022 and we will be releasing a whole new wine collection with Sarah Jessica later this year.”
Sarah Jessica has been involved in every step of the winemaking process with Invivo, from blending to bottle and merchandise design, and even serving on the board of Invivo & Co. Watch Sarah Jessica, Tim and Rob blend their 2021 vintage of wine together here.
