It is Friday night, let the weekend begin. I have opened the 2019 Huia Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. A Biodynamic, organically grown grapes from Clair & Mike Allan.
This nose is full of citrus notes, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, melon, white flowers, herbs and minerality.
On the palate there is plenty of lime, grapefruit, guava, white peach, melon, nectarine and good minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel and medium + acidity that moves seamlessly into a long crisp fresh citrus finish. Have a great weekend, please be safe and stay healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 10 days ago
Smells like grapefruit and acid and all the best things about an NZ Sauv Blanc. Pear and grapefruit on the pallette, crisp and fresh and effing wonderful. Yes, please. — 2 days ago
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. — a day ago
Very fresh and very tasty. A gooseberry, a citrus, an apple, tropical fruits in general, a grapefruit finish. Summer of 2020 - summer of sauvignon blanc (from New Zealand, mostly). :) — 3 days ago

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.

Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997. Pale straw with stone and citrus fruit aromas with hints of honey sweetness. On the palate dry, with lively fruit, gooseberry, lime, melon and pronounced grapefruit flavors with subtle herb tones, vivid acidity, crisp and refreshing. Long smooth finish ending with a mineral tones. Nice value! Ready to drink now! Love the ‘19. — a day ago
