The Marlborough Savvy that has renewed my interest in … well… Marlborough Savvy. There is some creaminess coming from lees with soft stonefruit characters pepped up with some lemon and lime citrus. There is some fine tropical and citrus fruit on the nose and some subtle grass to remind you that yes, this is a Sauvignon Blanc. In essence – this is an approachable wine that has the sharp edges smoothed out and presents you with fresh fruit without the flamboyant frock. Well, the label is a little flamboyant if it comes to that.
