The 2019 Invivo X by SJP "Sarah Jessica Parker" Sauvignon Blanc a lovely designed wine exhibiting attractive nuances of the grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, smooth, and layered on the palate. Its stylish aromas and flavors of grapefruit peel and tropical fruits coupled with its easy-drinking aftertaste should pair it well with light appetizers or a glass of wine by itself. (Tasted: August 7, 2019, San Francisco, CA)-WW
Abundant notes of grapefruit, honeysuckle, passionfruit, and citrus zest evolve from the glass. At first, the palate is expansive and leads with a wall of sweet-scented fruits and a soft- but balanced- acid spine. The mid-palate grows to another level, where supple phenolics offer a framework to further lift the fruit. The wine continues to unfold and is very long and persistent. This is a seriously drinkable Sauvignon Blanc that will continue to develop for up to seven years.-Winemakers Notes
Invivo X, by Sarah Jessica Parker, is created with New Zealand-based Invivo Wines, in what Parker describes as a very collaborative process. The collaboration covers aspect of the new wine, from naming and label design to the winemaking itself.
Invivo winemaker Rob Cameron explains: This wine is 100 Sarah Jessica Parker. So other than selecting the base wine from New Zealand (Sauvignon Blanc) Ill be taking a back seat and let her create the blends.
The Invivo X, SJP Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of five estates in Marlborough, spanning both Wairau and Awatere Valleys with vines ageing from three to eleven years. Sarah Jessica loved the intensity of style from the Waihopai Valley and has blended that with pure fruit aromatics from the Western Wairau and the power and purity found in the Westhaven Vineyard in the Dashwood. The Westhaven vineyard is one of the last blocks of Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough to be harvested and so has an extremely long season to develop flavor and power. The 2019 vintage presented us with an ideal growing season, allowing ripening to accumulate gradually, so harvest was timed to harness the maximum warmth and sunshine of summer.
Sarah Jessica Parkers first ever wine was perfected in May 2019 when Invivo founders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron travelled to New York City to create her new Sauvignon Blanc. They brought samples of the 2019 vintage, harvested in April. Over a three hour session, SJP and the Invivo team finalized the proportions from each vineyard to create the exact blending recipe used in the wine.-Winery Notes

Invivo X, SJP Rosé – the second release in the Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Wine Collaboration – comes from the South of France and has been crafted in partnership with a family estate from Provence, Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) and Invivo. The final blend was selected by SJP and Invivo over an afternoon of tasting and assessing in New York City and the result is a new rosé that can be taken very serious, but is also very seriously fun.
