History
New Zealand wine is renowned for its fresh, intense and vibrant flavours. The cool temperatures allows flavours to develop whilst retaining a fresh and well balanced acidity.
Regional Information
Located on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, Marlborough is one of the sunniest and driest areas, with mountains located to the west. The average daily temperature during summer is nearly 24 degrees C but clear cool nights keep acid levels high in the grapes.
Current Vintage
2016
Vinification Details
The growing season was near perfect during spring, with healthy vines and good crop levels, with cool, sunny days during autumn. Flavours developed early with the high sunshine hours, and acidity was retained because of the cool nights. Harvest in late March and early April was compressed but grapes were harvested in exceptional condition.

Don't waste your money even on offer

No flavour whatsoever. Exceptionally poor Sauvignon Blanc let alone one from NZ Marlborough NZ!!

Perfectly balanced

I dont understand the negative reviews: I only drink new world sauvignon blanc and this is a perfect example. Not as punchy as some others (e.g. Oyster Bay), but delicate and elegant, which I prefer. Perfect for a summers day. A 5-star bargain when on offer - however I rated 4 stars as I think too expensive when full priced

Cannot be NZ Sav Blanc!

Does not taste like a NZ Sauvignon Blanc, its flavourless, more like a Chenin Blanc. Im very surprised this is more than £10 per bottle.

Thin, acidic and flavourless

Bottled in England and with none of the usual Marlborough characteristics. Tastes cheap if not altogether nasty.

Only average

This stuff demands a slight premium over other NZ sauvignons, even when on offer. However, speaking for myself - and my drinking buddies would probably agree - it lacks the stereotypical flavours we look for. Maybe our palates are not sufficiently refined.
