Our Tasting Panel 96/100 Review…

Intensely fragrant and zesty aromas of ripe citrus, tropical & stone fruits with subtle sweet herbs and engaging aromas of gun smoke and wet stones. Generous flavours of black currant, lime, white peach, and yellow citrus abound... with a subtle mineral thread adding energy to the zesty, crisp, deep, dry finish. Flavour concentration, purity and balance permeate this delicious Sauvignon. Enjoy through 2025 with your favourite seafood… or just enjoy by itself.

With vines circa 20-40 years old and generational knowledge of their terroir… Wairau River have outstanding quality vineyards and winemaking knowledge. So, it’s unsurprising to us they outscored Marlborough’s best on offer to take the Champion Trophy for “Best Sauvignon in Show” 2023. Outstanding at $20.00 elsewhere… sensational at our Champion Trophy price of $14.99!

Striking concentration, character, and drinkability at $14.99. Enjoy JEFF
