2020 Soho Stella Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough, NZ

A zesty and concentrated Sauvignon Blanc highlighting the best vineyards of Marlborough



About the Wine

While hailing from France, Sauvignon Blanc has very much been adopted by New Zealand – the Soho Stella Sauvignon Blanc shows really well what the country can do with the variety. This drop turns its back on the greenness of many other NZ Sauv Blancs, instead offering ripe, zesty aromas and flavours.

There's a lovely consonance between the minerality and the citrus and stone fruit characters, backed by vibrant acidity, wonderful texture, and a pleasant finish. While the Soho Stella Sauvignon Blanc is drinking excellently now, you can also let it cellar for a few more years.

About Soho

Rachael Carter founded Soho Wines in 2008, using grapes from her father's vineyards in Marlborough and Waiheke Island. The intention from the beginning was to create premium wines that could be enjoyed by anyone. They now also source grapes from vineyards in the Gibbston, Bendigo and Bannockburn areas of Central Otago region on the South Island. Wines are made by Dave Clouston in Marlborough, James Rowan on Waiheke Island, and Grant Taylor in Central Otago.

Soho Wines currently makes a broad selection of wines across three labels (Black, Pink Sheep, and White), from Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Syrah. Proceeds from sales of their Pink Sheep collection go to charities focusing on mental health, children, animals, and the environment.

Critic Reviews

Raymond Chan

"Bright, very pale yellow with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and softly full with aromas of lime, cassis, capsicum and delicate spices. Medium-light bodied, nuances of lime extends with lime zest, interweave cassis, blackcurrant leaf and fine spices; salinity lingers to a sustained finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and delicate with chalky phenolics. Thirst-quenching acidity is integrated and buoyant; salinity added interest and provided a moreish finish. This is a savoury Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant flavours on a chalky palate." Candice Chow (Raymond Chan Wine Reviews)

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
