Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Mild grassy scent, strong guava scent, which really brings out the grape scents well.

It's a lovely light yellow, almost white in certain lighting.

First sip makes my mouth water, definitely getting that guava flavor with a lemon and green apple aftertaste. I'm not usually fond of tart wine, but this one is pretty unique. Enjoy chilled.

The 2018 vintage sold out fast on Winc, but they have a 2019 one that I may try in the future.

Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Star bright straw gold in the glass. Inviting though relatively subtle nose of gooseberry/grapefruit. These are on the palate as well with a distinct mineral note running alongside the medium plus acidity from entry to finish. Not your father’s NZ SB as that mineral note actually comes across as more “French-adjacent” than Kiwi. While still not very complex, it definitely shows more nuance than most of its peers. Enjoy with salads, seafood (shellfish or white fleshed fish), fresh fruits, or cream sauces by 2022. — 17 days ago

Calvert Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

This is 2015 vintage. I felt it has more tasty than 2013 and we can enjoy its complexity. But not too much. Good to meet Japanese cuisine, soy sauce based. @11000, nee Miura, 191210 — 4 days ago

Felton Road

Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2010

Well, it took me an extra day to fully enjoy it, also too in order to make vanish the clear sensations of the 2 pinots I drank just yesterday and the day before which were delicious
Unfortunately I keep comparing them
Day 1: Felton Rd was so much fleshier, even a little hot. I know it had to be different, but in the comparison it definitely lacked elegance, harmony and enjoyment. Though it had personality
Day 2:another wine, fully enjoyable, very defined, focus, pleasant. Not hot anymore. Still thousands of kms away from Burgandy, like it should be (but also so apart from others Central Otago pinots)
More than decent after taste

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Sunday night and tonight's wine is the 2018 Loveblock Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand.

On the nose there is strawberry, cranberry, cherry, cola, caramel, vanilla and a mineral dust soil component.

On the palate there is nice fruit, cranberry, cherry, raspberry, clove, herbs, mint and dusty soil.

This is a medium bodied wine that has a smooth mouth feel, medium + acidity with medium fine tannins that move right into a medium to long fresh fruit finish. Have a wonderful week ahead and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

This is my fourth bottle that I purchased through total all rated above 90 by WS. Total for order $100

Oops! This came in a bit over $20 previously stated at $ bad!
It has been awhile since I have had a NZ Sauvignon Blanc! Has anyone else noticed as you get older you have to monitor certain foods before having a highly acidic wine (acid reflux)!😩
This SB is great...I would say presenting with less acidity comparably to others
The color is clear with a tinge of yellow. What sets this apart is a fuller body with tropical fruit along with grapefruit and lemon..less of a gooseberry element and a pleasant long finish!
Very enjoyable!

@Dawn E. I have to be careful with all wines and beers because of what you mentioned! Thank goodness for over the counter acid reducers!
