Well, they could not leave it another summer without adding a Sauvignon Blanc to the range, and it is here in time for the Summer of ’14.
It is very gluggable and will certainly please the
Australian Sauvignon Blanc lover as it is dry, crisp and ripely fruited in a pineapple, peach and lemon fruit salad way. It is has a lightness of personality with not a lot in the way of flamboyant passionfruit or herbaceousness that is the hallmark of easy drinking Marlborough SB. Goes down a treat with dinner and I did find myself easily having a second glass which is something that I could not do if it did have that pungency of overripe passionfruit and herbs. (Confession: Well, not without secretly using it as an alcoholic cordial base which I have been known to do when my lovely friends are not looking.)
Again, a week on and, like the last time I tried these wines, it is still fresh. Really cannot ask for more from $19, in fact I think that for $8.49 per litre for a vintage wine in a box, it delivers the goods.
