The iconic Silver Fern of New Zealand is called “Ponga” by the country’s indigenous Maori people. Ponga comes from select vineyards in Marlborough, New Zealand’s most celebrated wine region. A delicate aroma of ripe tropical fruits, subtle earthy undertones and a hint of nettles. This fragrant wine exhibits flavors of white peach, lime and grapefruit. Mineral and floral nuances accent the finish. Light and juicy with just enough grapefruit flavor to let you know it’s a Sauvignon Blanc wthout overwhelming you with citrus flavors. We recommend serving this with sushi made from local seafood here on Ocracoke.
