Brightwater Vineyards

Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Ripe bananas, apples, green capsicans complement a flinty minerality and a long textured finish. Fresh acidity and creamy pear. Alcohol high but balanced.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Soft candied nose, rich bright fruit, lovely balance to acidity and lingering aftertaste, fresh and succulent. Bring on the oysters!

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Very slightly confected, slightly subdued, blackcurrant leaf and pastilles. Fruity, clean, dry, medium length.
