I tend to agree with my buddy Matt Kramer who maintains that the single most reliably tasty wine in the world is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. What that means to me is if you buy a bottle for $15 - $25 you almost always are going to get something that a) tastes like you expect it to and b) is delicious (assuming you like the way that NZ Savvy tastes). This here bottle is no exception to that rule with its passionfruit, green apple, and cut grass aromas and more of the same delicious green fruit flavors on the palate. The finish is all kiwi fruit and green apple and the acidity bright and mouthwatering. This was a press sample. — 6 days ago

Old Coach Road Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Very fresh, very tropical. It's hard to find a gooseberry, so it's a problem. :) But: a citrus freshness, pineapple, passion fruit - so... :) — 2 days ago

Second time tasting this wine and all my prior notes still apply. This is delicious. Super cherry, pomegranate nose, super acid drive, vivid palate with a lot of energy and a good grip. A good tannins wall brings some disruption to the end of the palate, laying a nice peppery, sandy layer. Lovely. — 9 days ago

Magnificent NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, gooseberries and kiwi. Light body and texture but bracing acidity and bold citrus notes on the finish. Great QPR! — 3 days ago

Very surprised at how tasty this wine was for a price under $20 a bottle. Great tropical notes, tasted as it had been aged on oak and will be my new porch pounder. — 17 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Nose is intensely full of tropical fruit, apple, gooseberries, herbs and mineral aromas. Nice lemony fruit flavors with hints of slate and fresh herbs. Mouth gripping acidity. Bright and fresh, especially on the finish. Yes, the whole “cat pee” thing is going on in this wine. Quite Refreshing! — 10 days ago
