Judges Comments:

As over 80% of Sauvignon Blanc production comes from Marlborough, it’s an easy mistake to look at every bottle with the assumption that it must be Marlborough wine. Which is why it’s such an added delight to drink this absolute cracker from somewhere different – Wairarapa, just north of Wellington. Lots of citrus flavour with blackcurrant and flavours so ripe they are almost tropical. Juicy and fresh with powerful flavour.

Pairing Recommendation:

The refreshing acidity is a terrific complement to Asian inspired dishes, especially Vietnamese and Thai, antipasti and pre dinner nibbles, cheese, chips and dips and pizza or pasta. Also great for a picnic and light lunches.
