Tasting Set Includes:
- Invivo X by Sarah Jessica Parker Sauvignon Blanc
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.
- Invivo X by Sarah Jessica Parker Rose
A gorgeous shade of blush pink in the glass, the aroma profile invokes clear rose petals and bright summer berry characters, wrapped in a minerality that makes this wine exceptionally fresh. It’s a wine that can be serious but is also seriously fun. SJP Rosé is full bodied with great complexity and elegance, delicious on its own or with a range of cuisine.

Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker is created with New Zealand-based Invivo….
The Invivo X, SJP award-winning wine range is a collaboration between Sarah Jessica Parker and New Zealand winery Invivo, featuring a Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand and a French Rosé. The partnership covers aspect of creating the wines, with SJP being hands on from the label design to the winemaking and wine blending itself.
New Zealand’s Invivo is one of the country’s leading producers who own one of New Zealand’s oldest wineries, and Cofounders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron taste and blend each new vintage with Sarah Jessica Parker so the wine is made to her taste preferences. One of the most awarded celebrity wine brands in recent years, Invivo X, SJP has clocked up more than 60 Gold medals and 90+ scores for both wines since its launch in 2019, including three 90+ points from Wine Spectator for its first three vintages of the Sauvignon Blanc.
“I feel fortunate that I was able to meet my Invivo X, SJP partners Tim and Rob in person after two years apart and together blend our fourth vintage of Sauvignon Blanc. We were looking to build on the quality of our previous vintages and are thrilled with the result. Each of the base wines had great personalities so combining them to create something special took some work at the blending table. Our final 2022 Sauvignon Blanc blend is tropical and has wonderful fresh citrus aromatics with a full and round mouthfeel and long finish. We are eager for Wine.com customers to try it.”
“It’s so important that Sarah Jessica is involved in blending of the new vintage of Invivo X, SJP each year as she represents the tastes of our customers and what they are looking for in their glass” says Rob. “Sarah Jessica has developed a beautiful style of Sauvignon Blanc that is soft with a subtle oak influence, which is created by some late harvesting, a little bit of skin contact and using French barriques and hogsheads as well as non-barrel blonde oak products.
