Blind River

Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

9.0

Smooth buttery fruity wine with a kick of citrus to balance it. It's got a lingering minerality that adds a slightly savoury finish to balances the passionfruit.
At £11 this feels just about worth the price but you could find as good a touch cheaper, for example the Majestic definition Sauv Blanc, which is fruitier.
In short, a great example of a Sauv and well worth drinking.

Petit Clos Famille Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tognights wine is the 2018 Clos Henry Vineyard Clos Petit Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, NZ. Made with organically grown grapes.

On the nose is citrus notes, lime, melon, grapefruit, nectarines, white peach skins, kiwi fruit and minerality.

On the palate you will find lime, tangerine, green apple, grapefruit, celery, saline, wet concrete and Loire minerality.

This wine is medium in body with good refreshingly good balance and electric medium + to high acidity that folds right into a fresh crisp long finish.

YUM. Fruity start, smooth middle, and a syrupy linger on the tongue. So drinkable. It's really fruit and more ish. At £10 it's well worth the money. — 18 days ago

Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Straw-hued. Aromas of bell pepper, cream, grapefruit, guava, pear, and tangerine. Light body and medium-high acidity. The nose presents a garden of citrus and herbs softened by malolactic fermentation. Mouthfeel is smooth with a long, balanced, refreshing finish of wet stone. From the Loire Valley; subtler than its Marlborough counterpart, but equally delicious. — 2 months ago

Yealands Estate

Single Vineyard Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2017

The floral smell is so beautiful I find myself just smelling the wine for longer periods of time. The taste is just as nice with a spicy liquorice feel with ripe plum and I sence some vanilla. — a month ago
