This is my fourth bottle that I purchased through Wine.com..5 total all rated above 90 by WS. Total for order $100
Oops! This came in a bit over $20 previously stated at $23..my 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! — 18 hours ago
Holy cow is this minerally! The fruit didn’t come out to play until the second day. By then there was a load of crisp, straw-inflected barely-ripe pear and apple fruit to cover the intense stoniness. Bone dry and very intense for a Pinot Blanc. Great value. No hurry to drink. — 18 hours ago
Raw fish and sauvignon blanc night. Pop and pour. An appealing pale golden straw color. On the nose: Muted notes of grapefruit, oak, and a little floral. Taste: minerals, minerals again, vanilla, pear and lemon....it has a rich mouthfeel with slight acidity..eeehhh, can take it or leave it. — 7 days ago
Le Mont is easily my favorite Chenin vineyard anywhere and 2017 I thought was particularly awesome so I bought it twice. It’s so expressive and so honest, unshowy. On second visit this wine is again a medley of zippy baked citrus, mango, ginger, passion fruit, and baking spice. Underneath it’s rich, but acidic enough to float. — 6 days ago
Nose has wet sandstone, cut Anjou pear, lemon peel, honeycomb and spring honeysuckle blossom. Faint-ish trailing of white vinegar.
Palate has honeydew mellon rind, under-ripe quince, slight candle wax notes and light minerality. Slightly raw-ish on the medium finish.
Nice, I love all the different expressions that Chenin Blanc can display. — 10 days ago
Tonight I have opened the 2017 Te Awanga Rod McDonald Mister Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose there is generous amounts of lime, guava, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, nectarine, white flowers, minerality and wet concrete.
On the palate I am finding nice citrus, lime, white peach, green apple, kiwi fruit, nectarine, celery, herbs and minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves nicely into a long clean citrus finish. Have a continued great weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 6 days ago
Pale lemon in color with a yellow tint.
Nice nose of lemons, citrus, light wood, light vanilla, yellow apples, spices, light tropical fruits and bananas.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green apples, light grapefruits, limes, light wood, earth, vanilla, spices and white pepper.
Long finish with tangy citrus fruits.
This is great Sauvignon Blanc from Rutherford in Napa Valley. Nicely balanced and spicy, with a great mouthfeel.
Showing nice complexity with a little bit of oak and vanilla notes, but not overwhelming at all.
Alcohol is well-balanced as well, although high, so watch out.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with fresh oysters. Delicious.
Aged for 8 months in 20% New French oak barrels. A small production of only 50 cases.
14.2% alcohol by volume.

Vintage 2011 / Chenin Blanc Par Excellence. From a lesser known AOC in Anjou/Loire next to Coteaux du Layon. This is só gorgeous. Gold colour. Smells like honey, Turkish Fruit, apricot. Beautiful lively sweetness on the tongue. Perfect aperitive for Sunday lunch. Paired with Duck liver paté. — 5 days ago
