South Island Sauvignon Blanc

Greywacke

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

This is my fourth bottle that I purchased through Wine.com..5 total all rated above 90 by WS. Total for order $100

Oops! This came in a bit over $20 previously stated at $23..my bad!
It has been awhile since I have had a NZ Sauvignon Blanc! Has anyone else noticed as you get older you have to monitor certain foods before having a highly acidic wine (acid reflux)!😩
This SB is great...I would say presenting with less acidity comparably to others
The color is clear with a tinge of yellow. What sets this apart is a fuller body with tropical fruit along with grapefruit and lemon..less of a gooseberry element and a pleasant long finish!
Very enjoyable!

@Dawn E. I have to be careful with all wines and beers because of what you mentioned! Thank goodness for over the counter acid reducers!

Outer Sounds

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Mild grassy scent, strong guava scent, which really brings out the grape scents well.

It's a lovely light yellow, almost white in certain lighting.

First sip makes my mouth water, definitely getting that guava flavor with a lemon and green apple aftertaste. I'm not usually fond of tart wine, but this one is pretty unique. Enjoy chilled.

The 2018 vintage sold out fast on Winc, but they have a 2019 one that I may try in the future.

Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

One of the oldest estates in the Marlborough region, Cloudy Bay is considered the benchmark for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. In 2003 it was acquired by the LVMH group. Very aromatic, bursting passion fruit. Grapefruit. Crisp, bright acidity. Perfect for Miami. — 7 days ago

Mohua

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Truly fabulous example of New Zealand Sauv Blanc. Light, very fresh, delicate color. Very floral on the nose, just a touch musky. Nice fruit flavor, favoring melon. Low acidity. Finished the entire bottle a little too quickly. — 14 days ago

Greyrock

Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Star bright straw gold in the glass. Inviting though relatively subtle nose of gooseberry/grapefruit. These are on the palate as well with a distinct mineral note running alongside the medium plus acidity from entry to finish. Not your father’s NZ SB as that mineral note actually comes across as more “French-adjacent” than Kiwi. While still not very complex, it definitely shows more nuance than most of its peers. Enjoy with salads, seafood (shellfish or white fleshed fish), fresh fruits, or cream sauces by 2022. — 11 days ago
