Sarah Jessica Parker has created and released her first wine in partnership with Kiwi winery Invivo & Co. The new wine, ‘Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Sauvignon blanc’ is now available across the country.
In addition to New Zealand’s release, the wine has also come out in Australia, USA, UK, Ireland and Japan. “This is a seriously drinkable Sauvignon Blanc that will continue to develop for up to seven years,” said Rob Cameron, co-founder and winemaker at Invivo. “Sarah Jessica loves the fruit purity of Sauvignon Blanc but wanted to make a wine that has some weight behind it. The result is a beautifully well-balanced drop—think flavours of grapefruit, honey-suckle flower, passionfruit and citrus zest balanced with an acidic spine—it’s not a typical Marlborough Sauvignon.”
Sarah Jessica Parker has been hands-on throughout the whole process. “While I am new to winemaking, the Invivo fellows generously taught, showed and shared as much of the art and science of their business and hopefully I have absorbed some of their Kiwi confidence,” she said.
The new wine has been met with success, having already garnered accolades from the wine community, and landing a 95-point rating from New Zealand wine reviewer Sam Kim at Wine Orbit. He said, “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.”
