2012 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand: Marlborough
The New Republic
We absolutely adore today’s classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc produced by Sauvignon Republic! Maybe because we undeniably adore the talented winemaker Virginia Marie Lambrix. Or, it could be the fact that this wine is such a wonderful, budget-friendly white wine for the upcoming holidays. We have featured Ginny’s marvelous wines before but today, we have found a true gem!
Crafted from grapes from a select vineyard source in New Zealand, this bright and fresh Sauvignon Blanc proves to be the ultimate holiday sipper. With notes of green apple, honeysuckle, and pineapple - our tasting panel had a hard time putting their glasses down - until the very last drops were imbibed! Tropical and versatile we suggest you pair this lively wine with any type of sea food, sushi, hard cheeses, or all by itself!
Refreshingly delicious we recommend that you stock up today - and save a few bottles for next summer’s blistering temperatures!
Light straw and crystal clear, from the heart of the wine, out to the translucent edges. After an intense swirl, tall columned tears begin to creep slowly down the glass.
Fresh and bright, with tropical notes that suggest that the wine will be delicious and bursting with flavor. Notes of sweet citrus, spice and hint of grassiness all add to the enchanting fragrance. As the wine begins to open, aromas become more potent and inviting with a sweeter note of honeysuckle and fresh pineapple.
Lively acidity is expressed through fresh green apple, sweet citrus and subtle grassiness. After breathing the complexity begins to come alive, providing new layers of depth.
Soft and silky smooth, the finish attests that this bright and fresh white wine is easy drinking. Lingering green apple and bright acidity in the gum line will continue well after last sip.
