I've felt for a while that the exploding popularity and demand for Sauv Blanc from New Zealand has resulted in producers crafting their wines to be a bit more oaked, sugared, and mass-market appealing.
However, in 2012, we found a producer whose wine we loved so much, we took it a step further and created this brand for it. Sourced from a fantastic property in Marlborough, this wine is a no-compromise throwback to what put New Zealand Sauv Blanc on the map.
Crisp, light style Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
The 2011 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is true to its character, with plenty of crisp, zesty citrus for a light body sauvignon blanc. Not overly complex, but a solid choice at a great price.
I just returned from a salmon fishing trip and I thought this would pair up nicely with the newly acquired Greenlip. I was not disappointed. The citrus flavors came through and were fresh with each sip. It complemented the meal wonderfully.
I was so glad that I purchased the case as my wife, a big Sauvignon Blanc fan, seems to break out this wine every time her friends come over.
Really limited flavor, almost like drinking water. Would not order again, and the remainder of the case will be used to steam mussels, etc
I hated this sharp wine. It was awful.
Only buy and drink SB from Marlborough and this doesn't disappoint.
We like a strong grapefruit/lime effervescence - YUM!
A very nice wine
Too bad that its sold out. Great nose and well balanced flavors and good acid. Nice after taste.
What a disappointment
I love Sauvignon Blanc, especially the Marlborough products, but this wine was a big disappointment - it is completely inoffensive, but it also has none of the characteristic grassy flavors I associate with this kind of wine. Sorry that there is another five bottles left to get through.
A terrific surprise
This New Zealander was way more than I expected. Better than most that I have paid far more for. It has all of the flavors that you expect from a Sauvignon Blanc, without the super acid you get from some. Quite delicious!
the first of this wine I had ordered. love the citrus flavor, Drinking it now and think it will be a great summer wine for sitting on the deck chilling out!
I don't like white wine, but I love this one! Love the first taste of icy cold wine that seems to explode in your mouth with wonderful flavor!! Have sent bottles as gifts. Last summer we went through two cases. Have bought more for the winter! A real find!
