Tenuta Campo di Sasso at Mount Nelson in New Zealand is still a relatively young venture.
Two worlds meet at Mount Nelson
in 2003, Italian nobleman Marchese Antinori acquired it along with the finest sites in Marlborough. The name Mount Nelson is that of a mountain in New Zealand. The sites at the foot of Mount Nelson are considered ideal for growing the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc, so the climate here is cool and yet very sunny. The Antinori family, to which the Mount Nelson winery belongs, is one of the very big players in the international wine world. And so it is not surprising that they have also got involved with this excellent region in New Zealand. The white wine succeeds here particularly fresh and fruity. But also the Tenuta Campo di Sasso itself is already making a name for itself in New Zealand.
Best wines from the Taylor River estuary of Mount Nelson
in 2004, the first vintage of Mount Nelson appeared and began to captivate connoisseurs. The vines thrive in the striking Taylor River estuary near Cloudy Bay and benefit from the Mediterranean climate of the Meadowbank. The noble Tuscan Antinori family is also responsible for the rise of the super Tuscan Tignanello and Ornellaia.
Daring the balancing act
The Mount Nelson name stands for expressive, fresh and fruity Sauvignon Blancs from one of the world's best sites for growing this noble grape variety. They manage to perfectly combine the fresh fruit of the New World with the minerality of the Old World.
And these are the varietals grown at Mount Nelson:
- Sauvignon Blanc
