I wasn’t familiar with Wither Hills winery until tasting their Marlborough Sauvignon blanc, which was impressive. The grapes were sourced from the northeast tip of the South Island of New Zealand, a rugged and beautiful vineyard that borders the ocean and the Wither Hills mountain range.

Spring rolls

The 2015 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc was a classic example of what the region produces—feisty complexity with lime and tropical guava finishing with a tinge of mineral. And considering its $12 bucks a bottle, the quality to price ratio is off the charts. Pair with vegetarian Vietnamese spring rolls. This was a perfect pairing that brought out the freshness of the vegetables. Enjoy!
