Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Apple crumble aromas, with mandarin, acidity complements fruit flavours which marry nicely. Finish is long and inviting.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Ripe and fresh, clean fresh fruits, good fine easy drinking. Lovely freshness, clean gooseberries, not tinned.
