Irvine, CA – December 19, 2013 - Fernz, New Zealand producers of ultra-premium Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reveals its redesigned logo and label that will debut with its 2013 vintage, Sauvignon Blanc. The new logo and label is designed by award winning graphic designer, Michael Kornoff.

The redesign incorporates a dynamic theme, with contrasting black, white and greens. This sleek, bold color palate holds great significance to New Zealand’s symbolism. The black and white pays homage to the bold and pure landscape of New Zealand, and the green speaks to Fernz’s sustainable and ethical winemaking practices.

The new label also features a crisp Silver Fern. The Silver Fern is the national emblem of New Zealand, and convoys a sense of inspiration, purity and pride.

“We are excited to release our 2013 vintage. We want our redesign to pay tribute to the uniqueness of New Zealand.” said Fernz Wine national sales manager, Josh Pelter.

The back label is content rich and educates the consumers on the superb qualities of the new vintage. The label incorporates tasting notes, which provides a unique style guide, pairing suggestions and a profile summary of the wine.

The 2013 vintage, Sauvignon Blanc, is richly textured, crisp and refreshing in taste. Its pale straw color comes from a balanced blend of ripe gooseberries, herbal aromas and tropical fruit. This light and dry Sauvignon Blanc, pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, acidic and grilled food.

Fernz wine is produced on 350 acres of family owned vineyards near Blenheim in the region of Marlborough, New Zealand. The grapes are estate grown and bottled onsite. The redesigned label reflects the winery’s love for great winemaking, with a splash New Zealand tradition.
