Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Toasty bready nuances, citrus fruits, with ched conference caramelised pears. This wine will benefit from ageing, and alcohol and fruit components will balance out with time. Giving a full bodied and well structured wine.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Sweet brioche on the nose, toasty, slight perfume. Lovely rich lingering texture which evolves on the palate, long luxurious finish of roasted tropical fruit with sauce anglaise. This goes on and on, a wine to drink now or keep. Tantlising citrus and tropical fruits continue to bounce around afterwards.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Aromatic, woody & grassy, but oddly confected – smoky bacon crisps.
