NZ 6 Sauvignon Blanc

This Dave Phinney creation from New Zealand shows a light gold color
in the glass and a grassy nose with peach aromas, but not full-blown Kiwi herbal. The palate also offers peaches, apples and herbs. The nice acidity doesn't exactly zip, but gets the job done. There's an herbal finish. The wine should go great with salmon and salads.

Loveblock

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The 2018 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc comes from the hilltops above Marlborough’s Awatere Valley. It shows 12.5% abv and sells for $22. Erica Crawford says, “New Zealand’s signature varietal tends to be bold and big,” thanks in no small part to her husband. This wine, she says, “focuses on texture rather than enhanced aromatics.” It went through 25% malolactic fermentation in order to soften the wine. Sure enough, it’s tamer and fruitier on the nose than their previous efforts. The minerals are still there, but the sometimes overwhelming greenness is replaced by a great fruit flavor. The 2017 vintage is a little grassier on the nose and palate, but still mild in comparison to the earlier profile. — 18 days ago

Palliser Estate

Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Intense and satisfying! Nose of jasmine and lemon grass. Palate features passion fruit, slight grapefruit, and ginger. I’m starting to turn the corner with SB and the New Zealand wines are playing a large part in this. — 3 hours ago

Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2014

9.0

The nose reveals, dry cut grass, green beans, ripe; lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, guava, mango, green melon, nectarines & peaches. Herbaceous notes, mint, chalky minerals, just a hint of cat pee, honey notes, sandstone and spring flowers with yellow lilies.

The body is rich, lush and full. The crisp palate minerality almost gives it a sense of tannins. Dry cut grass, green beans, ripe; lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, guava, mango, green melon, nectarines & peaches. Herbaceous notes, mint, chalky minerals, slight hint of petrol, honey notes, sandstone white spices with some palate heat, and spring flowers wit yellow lilies. The acidity is quite high. The rich, fruit finish is well polished and lingers for minutes.

Photos of, the Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc grapes, tasting with part owner- Kevin Carriker at his home a couple of years ago and their vines in Coombsville.

Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Some real heft for a domestic SB. More ginger gold/green apple than citrus in terms of flavor profile. I catch a grassy element here that works, some white nectarine....very steely. A unique expression. — 12 days ago

Edmond Vatan

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Might be a so so bottle, might be past it’s prime. My first ever “I don’t know Vatan.” It’s been open for 2.5 hours. Anyone else on 2006? We are going to find out cause plenty is left to taste later and we are into some other bottles... — 5 days ago

Thésée La Romaine A Sauvignon 2015

Pale lemon in colour. Notes of passion fruit. Little or zero oak influence. From an organic producer - A new world take on an old world Sauvignon Blanc. By the glass in an Asian restaurant in Fortitude Valley. Refreshing drinking. A bottle would disappear quickly in a group. — 9 days ago

Need more of this ASAP. I can definitively say this is my favorite Sauvignon Blanc. I’ve never been a huge fan of the variety but this is a game changer. — a day ago
