Marlborough Sauvigon Blanc


Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Purchased at their Oregon winery. Pale yellow with a golden tinge, excellent clarity. Pineapple and herb notes in nose. Pineapple, herb and lemon-orange flavors, creamy lees finish, light to moderate skin astringency. Mandarin orange and slightly mineral aftertaste. Good acidity, rounded mouthfeel. Tasty fruit forward style but no discernible cat’s pee note if you expect that from a Marlborough Sauvignon blanc. Intensity of fruit flavors change over time, with orange-mandarin flavors receding somewhat after two hours. — 7 days ago

Выпито 20.04.19 в Пильнице с друзьями Даши- Аней и Валентином. Аня сделала прекрасфокпччо и лепешки. Закусывали manchego и taleggio. Нежное и минеральное. Уверенных 9.0. — 4 days ago


Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Nearly clear in the glass and very faint scents of Meyer lemon on the nose. Strong notes of straw, fresh cut grass, and honeysuckle on the palate. A bit more nuanced and lean than most other ~$10 NZ Sauv Blanc's. Less juicy and more rustic. A nice surprise, if a bit single note. Interesting enough for a more experienced crowd, but easy drinking for everyone else. A great book club choice. — 16 days ago


Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Color is so light yellow green tone, almost transparent and bubble. Nose of roasted nuts, canned peach, ripe pineapple, honey and flowering note, and a bit Sprite note. Taste is bubbly, zesty, a bit tinkling spice, ripe fruit and honey note again. Slightly sweet and a bit minerals. Very clean and some more acidity backbone. After taste is light yet refreshing. I am wondering why the ratings from the community is literally too harsh. — 15 days ago

Very light and fresh wine. Made from single vineyard. First winemaker to do sauv Blanc in new Zealand.
Not super grass/green pepper and not too high in acidity - overall much more time than most sauv blancs.

Light, with a subtle aroma and flavor of passion fruit with a crisp finish of green apple. Wonderful chilled and would be great for a warm day or evening. — 6 days ago

Again, I’ve said it before, and here again.
Sauvignon Blanc treated as Chardonnay can be glorious!

This is an explosion (frenzy?) of Sauvignon blanc flavors not usually all found together in my experience. Distinct citrus, melon, grassy, and stone fruit flavors are melded into a delightful whole. Peachy-ness lingers. Light bodied, medium alcohol, pale straw-green. Label states it is a blend of wines from selected vineyards. They’ve done a very nice job. Easy to drink with nice complexity. — 9 days ago
