2015 Villa Maria "Private Bin" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Elsewhere $13+)

91 points Bob Campbell: "A blend of grapes from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. One of the first examples of 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I have tasted. If it is typical of the vintage then it appears to have been an excellent year. A smaller than usual crop might explain greater than usual concentration in this wine. Citrus, grapefruit, melon and a hint of passion fruit supported by juicy acidity. Good value at this price." (7/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pale, bright yellow.

2016 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

The winemakers at Kim Crawford tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavor profile, aiming for a classic expression of crisp, grassy, and snappy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Fruit is night-harvested, when the temperatures are cool to minimize oxidation, making it easier to manage in the winery. Look for what you know and love about this refreshing Kiwi staple: upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavor... Read More »
