Blank Canvas is the personal wine range of husband and wife team, Matt Thomson and Sophie Parker-Thomson, MW. With a focus on Marlborough, Syrah from Hawkes Bay and Pinot Noir from Central Otago, the Blank Canvas wines are exciting, small-batch and increasingly recognised as the avant-garde of New Zealand wine.

While the classic expression of this famous wine style is about fruit purity and crispness, this wine represents an alternative interpretation. ‘Abstract’ is a departure from the norm. This wine is all about texture and layers of aromatic complexity derived from both fruit and winemaking. The Holdaway family vineyard in Dillons Point provides the pillar of blackcurrant, passionfruit and its signature salty minerality, while the 100% wild yeast fermentation in seasoned French oak puncheons offers savoury attraction and complexity on the palate.

This Sauvignon Blanc would pair perfectly with any fish dish. 

About the Winery

Blank Canvas

Blank Canvas is the personal wine range of husband and wife team, Matt Thomson and Sophie Parker-Thomson.

Having completed over fifty back-to-back vintages in both New Zealand and Europe as an award-winning winemaking consultant, Matt together with Sophie felt it was time to create and build a wine brand together, with their first vintage in 2013. Blank Canvas embodies their own expression of art-meets-science with single-vineyard, small batch wines that push the sensory boundaries and challenge winemaking orthodoxy.

Winemaker Matt Thomson’s science background defines the parameters of his winemaking canvas, allowing creativity to flow within those bounds. Together with business partner, Master of Wine student and wife Sophie Parker-Thomson, Matt is striving to achieve the unique winemaking fusion between art and science, pushing the boundaries to capture a unique expression.

Sophie recently obtained her Master of Wine title,  joining 149 women MWs globally with the total number of MWs in the world now 418 in 32 countries.

Chamomile, dried lemons, oyster shells, green apples and beeswax. Fascinating umami character with excellent concentration, a medium body and an oily texture. Characterful. Sustainable. Drink now. Screw cap.
