2016 Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc

A classic Kiwi wine icon that's hit a rich vein of form

Gold Bob Campbell MW 92/100 Wine Spectator 90/100

Description

A wine that's always been great value, recently Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc has ramped the quality up further, with greater emphasis on texture through small portions of barrel fermented wine. This lifts the wine right into the 5-Star category, with striking aromatics of passionfruit, guava, blackcurrant and crushed herbs. Very rich on the palate, it's perfect with shellfish or Asian cuisine.

Smells

Classic, pungent Marlborough, with heady perfumes of passionfruit, currant and dried herbs.

Tastes

Clean, crisp and very zesty, this has a vibrant spine of acid that carries a trailer-load of tropical fruit. A classic vintage of a classic wine, this is a staple for summer and best with fresh shellfish or Vietnamese style cuisine.
