Wairau River

Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Lemon tart, aciditiy is fresh and vibrant and complements fruit intensity. Minerality is present but not dominating.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Clean and fresh, exciting wine to drink on a cool summer evening. Some creamy goats cheese, touch of mushroom on the palate, well balanced, clean and refreshing.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Chalky, green, lean. Lacking fruit but has ashtrays.
