Invivo Marlborough Belle Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Here's a wine for those watching their waistline, as well as their alcohol intake. At 30% less calories and 9% alcohol, there's no danger of a headache after a couple of glasses at home. It shows bright, racy smells of lemons, limes and fresh herbs on the nose, whilst the palate is light and a touch sweet (off-dry), with punchy cirtusy flavours, friendly acidity, and a juicy finish. Should go well with that garden salad.

Winemaker's Notes

With 30% less alcohol and 30% less calories than our standard Sauvignon Blanc!

"Fresh cut pineapple and passionfruit with hints of green gage plums and racy limes hit both nose and palate. Soft, full textured mouth-feel with pleasing balance leaves the palate both awakened and refreshed! Invivo belle is deceptive in its power and has great length without requiring high alcohol, using fruit intensity as the backbone to its structure. Invivo belle will accompany a wide range of cuisine and excel with light salads and pasta dishes" - Rob Cameron, Invivo Winemaker

Reviews and Accolades

"Fresh, bright and vibrant aromas of gooseberries, capsicums, passionfruit and herbs are lifted with attractive lime notes"
4 Stars - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews 2012

"A low alcohol version and it's a beauty. The bouquet shows classic herbal and lime zest characters with a touch of ripe apple notes. It's juicy and rounded on the palate with lovely fruit weight, finishing pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2014"
4 Stars - Wine Orbit 2012

"Belle is a pretty package and it tastes all right too. The sweet, lightly fruity, zesty aroma is crisp, with some herbaceous punch. Plenty of soft, citrusy flavour washes across the palate"
