2000 Cellars of Canterbury Moata Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
|Date tasted:||12 June 2002|
|Price when tasted:||£6.99|
Perfect chilled with seafood, 'Moata' means fresh, a good description for this lively Sauvignon Blanc. It is grown in the centre of the Marlborough district, which has become a popular and highly successful area for Sauvignon. It has apple and freshly-cut grass on the nose accompanied by good refreshing acidity, and nicely balanced clean and ripe fruit flavours. The length is long and flavoursome, and £6.99 is a top price for one of New Zealand's favourite exports.
