Small and Small

Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Tropical nuances, crisp acidity with flavours of red apples. Layers of complexity. Low acidity ovewhelms fruit charecterisctics a little and makes finish feel shorter than it should.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Soft gooseberries on the nose, textured and layered, fruit somewhat closed or hidden. Lacking freshness and zing.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Grass clippings, blackcurrant leaf. Lively bright fruit, leafy and passionfruit, lemony acidty, crisp. Very appealing.
