Mt. Difficulty

Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Elderflower, mango and lime verbena. Alcohol feels domineering and hard to appreciate delicate flavours when it feels unbalanced.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Rich and savoury, deep intensity. Very sweet dessert wine or sherry like.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Fresh, very tropical. Passion fruit Solero, intense but not complex.
