Rimapere is the work of Baron Edmond de Rothschild. His famous family is internationally known as giants in the banking and wine industries. The Rothschild family's first entry into the banking industry was in 1798, soon after the French Revolution. In a short time, they became one of the most influential names in the banking world.
Chateau Lafite was considered one of the most magnificent chateaux in France by the 17th Century. The first mention of this heralded Bordeaux property was in 1252, and its fame only increased, culminating with its purchase by Baron James de Rothschild in 1868.
From then on, the wine empire grew alongside the banking empire - they now own wine properties worldwide, including Italy, Spain, South Africa, and our Rimapere in New Zealand. The culture of Bordeaux is that you treat the ground with the highest respect, for it is what decides what the wine will be. So it is here, with their attention to the soil here in Marlborough, continually analyzed and scrutinized to produce the perfect grapes possible.
That zeal translates into this heavenly offering of Sauvignon Blanc, one of the finest we've ever tasted from this region. Its beauty is in its balance. Here are all the flavors you look for from grapefruit to gooseberry, lime, white peach, and fresh herbs. And, you get it all, but each one in perfect harmony with the rest. Steamed white fish with soy and ginger would be an honor.
