Auntsfield 'Single Vineyard' Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand 2016

13.95

They say that you are never more than 6 feet away from a rat, but you're probably never more than 6 feet away from a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc either, such is its ubiquity, so it takes a really good one to stand out from the crowd, especially when even the cheapest ones are still perfectly palatable The thing we loved about this one was the glacial purity of the fruit, which had the cool, crystalline freshness of mountain streamwater bobbing with lemons, limes, apples and gooseberries. 13% alc. Drink now-2020.

BREAKING NEWS!

This wine has just been rated the top New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in Decanter Magazine (August edition), being awarded the rare "Exceptional" tag and 98 out of 100 points!

Cameron Douglas MW (Decanter Magazine): "Classis mix of fresh and dried herbs, fine citrus and tropical passion fruit and peach hints. Encapsulates what's at the heart of Marlborough's Sauvignon Blanc message - energy, precise attack and flavours that last. Classic." 98/100 points

Melanie Brown (Decanter Magazine): "Beautifully poised and extravagant: gooseberry, green grass and elderflower, crunch acid and harmonious, good length. Yum!" 98/100 points

Bob Campbell MW (Decanter Magazine):
"Weighty, quite intense red capsicum, gooseberry and nectarine flavours, also showing impressive purity and length. Rich and flavoursome with typical weight and concetration for a wine from this clay-rich-sub-region. Tropical fruit, passion fruit, guava and apricot flavours plus a seasoning of brioche. It's quite a mouthful." 98/100 points

Jancis Robinson.com (Tamlyn Currin): "Classic Marlborough: vibrant tropical fruit, mown green grass, passion fruit. Crystal-clear citrus and gooseberry on the palate. Very direct and classy with a dry, crisp finish. Drink 2017-2020." 16.5 points and 'Good Value'
