Sauv Blanc lovers know that beautiful New Zealand is a magnificent place to grow this varietal – it’s often nicknamed the world’s Sauvignon Blanc capital, after all. Unmistakable the moment the first explosive aromas hit your nose, the signature grape from this small island nation off Australia’s eastern coast has become enormously popular stateside and around the globe. While different subtleties are on display from the country’s north and south islands, it’s the Marlborough region of the South Island that sets the benchmark.
Lot 780 comes to us from a stalwart Marlborough producer with some of the most prime real estate in the country. Sourced from vineyards planted in deep silt loam soils by the Wairau River with fantastic canopy density, the grapes receive plenty of maritime influence and a long growing season that develops more complexity in the fruit, resulting in a wine that’s intense in flavor, dialed-in with signature acidity, and perfectly weighted on the palate. Just one sip is enough to remind you why the zesty citrus bursts of Marlborough have elevated the region to such vaunted heights.
Dry and Tasty
Awesome NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Tastes like Cloudy Bay at half the price.
Great Summer Wine
Loved this one! Very refreshing since summer is already in full swing in Texas!
Perfect for Summer
We did a side by side between this and Lot 810 (Dry Creek Valley). My hubby, myself and a Sauvignon Blanc loving daughter. This is a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. We started with both very chilled, let warm a bit, and than warmed till barely cool. The lime zest that Cam describes stood out to me, I did not get any of the grapefruit that other reviewers have mentioned. The nose increased as he wine opened up. But for Summer very chilled on the back porch would be wonderful. For food I would let it warm up a bit. My daughter loved this one. I will probably reorder this for just sipping and the 810 for food.
Perfect with summer citrus cuisine
Drinking this alone, the grapefruit flavor is very prevalent. Pairing it with any lemon or citrus inclusive meal is absolutely heavenly. Perfect for hot summer days.
This is much like other fine Suavignon Blanc's from Cameron Hughes. The initial flavors were pear & grapefruit. It's a great wine for warm summer days, another case will ordered soon.
New Zealand delivers!
I enjoy good Sauvignon Blanc from California but my favorite style is from Marlborough.
Lot 780 has all the attributes of great New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Best summer wine
I love this wine chilled. Perfect flavor for summer.
We love it!
We had a bottle last night with our salmon pasta salad ... We are BIG fans of NZ SVB and this one does not disappoint. We will continue to purchase until it is sold out!
A pleasure ...
This is a delight, bringing memories of the "Green-Lipped Mussel" NZ Sauvignon Blanc of five or six years ago that CH Wine had available -- which was also superfine. This takes a good chill; I brought it out of the fridge for 15 minutes of warmup before starting on the wine, and it was just right.
Good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
A good Marlborough example, and a very good price. Tart with grapefruit. Would have been nice for a bit more of the grassy flavors
