Critical Acclaim

A joint venture between Tuscany's Ludovico and Piero Antinori, Mount Nelson’s 2010 is a fresh, herbal rendering of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Treble notes of tomato leaf and bell pepper predominate, with grapefruit providing the bass.

Mount Nelson

View all wine
After producing a singular Sauvignon Blanc at Tenuta dell’Ornellaia in Tuscany for many years, Marchese Lodovico Antinori wanted to make a wine that captured the same crisp, natural exuberance of the grape, while displaying restraint, elegance and structure. He turned to Marlborough, New Zealand, and in 2003 purchased, with his brother Piero Antinori, a portion of the Meadowbank vineyard. In 2004, they produced the first vintage of Mount Nelson from this property, fulfilling Lodovico’s dream of creating a signature Sauvignon Blanc outside of Italy.
