Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Riper fruits with a tropical edge, citrus still in the forefront but is backed up with good structure and minerality, long rewarding finish.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Soft delicate nose, palate somewhat creamy and then a lovely explosion of tantilising fruit. Tropical and stone fruit, multi layered complex wine, evolving in the glass, leaves a great lip smacking finish.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Pungent, herbaceous nose, whiff of ashtray. Quite lean, with earth-tinged herbaceousness, good length.
