Melanie Brown

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Ripe manadrins, touch of residual sugar gives a decieving impression it has good flavour, notes of kaffir lime leaves. Alcohol feels unbalanced and obtrusive.

Roger Jones

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Guava and paw paw nose, ripe and intense, high acidity but well balanced. Lots in the mouth, leaving a lovely tingling fresh aromatic fruity palate, delicate white peaches and wild flowers.

Peter McCombie

Tasting: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Gooseberry & tomato leaf, vibrant citrussy acidity. Very fresh, with gooseberry flavours and good length.
