South Island Sauvignon Blanc

Waipapa Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This wine’s nose bears the New Zealand standard for Sauvignon Blanc - grassy, herbal, grapefruity and a lanolin note thrown in to the mix. The grapefruit comes on strong on the palate and brings the herbal stuff in through the back door. Acidity is great and the finish is long and full of citrus.

Oyster Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Color is really light egg white. Nose of flowering note, light honey, crayon, spice, nectarine, and ripe pineapple. Nose is decent with tropical fruits rhythms. Taste follows the nose with addition of zest and nice acidity. Good balance of sweetness fro the fruits and honey mix with quality acidity. Aftertaste is also medium long with more zest, and flowering note. With this price tag, you can hardly beat it. — 19 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Impressive - effusive evolving nose very complex for NZ SB: big time grassy w/hint of savory herbs, but quickly pivots to green-filtered fruit: pineapple, guava, and lime - tart zesty vibrant citrusy w/out being nervy. They got something really good going on here — 16 days ago
