Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Fruit flavours complement the acidity but fruit concentration seems a little lost. Smoky oak adds another layer, but finish is masked by alcohol.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Fresh, clean delicate nose. Full flavour on the palate – intense gooseberries, sharp and clean, evolving on the palate.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Stony, tropical, but really restrained. Perfumed, blackcurrant. Good rather than great. Honest, straightforward style, with decent bite of acidity.
