Ben Glover, of Wither Hills fame, is now
focusing on matters closer to home and has taken charge of his
family winery Zephyr.
Referring to himself humbly as the janitor, Ben creates wines
from their own vineyards in the renowned Marlborough sub-region of
Dillon's Point. The whites especially deserve to be compared with
other world class whites rather than merely the best of
No more so than with the MKIII Sauvignon Blanc, that is a star
in any line up. Taken from the Rabbit Island block that,
thanks to its East/West planting, captures both wonderful aromatics
and lush tropical notes in its grapes. Once pressed, the juice
ferments in barrels to produce a complex, waxy Graves lookalike,
albeit at a rather more accessible price point.
