Te Whare Ra

Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

A lovely marriage of gooseberry, citrus and pear. Fruit flavours are intense but is harmonic with acidity and leads to an inviting finish.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Bright rich pineapple on nose, some green pepper. Fruits are quite sharp, high aciditity. Needs time to soften as there is a lot happening here.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Tangy, sweaty, tropical, fresh, zesty. Very Awatere, but acid a little hard edged.
