Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Sweaty gooseberries and harsh wet stone finish. Texture is crunchy and feels remarkedly fresh considering its vintage. A touch of smokiness comes through at the end.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Strong on the nose. Cats pee and quite abbrassive, funky wine. Lots going on, rich textures and quite complex, but the nose is an issue for me.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Mineral, waxy, textural style.
