An old vine Sauvignon Blanc. Marlborough, NZ

FullSizeRender

This wine was received from a family friend, a surprise gift. I then stored it in the fridge anticipating when I might taste it.

Here I am now writing my review, having tasted this delightful ‘old vine’ Sauvignon Blanc.  Mouthwatering tropical fruit bursts, limes, lemons and layer upon layer of stone fruit aromas, with acidity adding wonderful balance to this wine. Old vines most definitely bring intensity to this Sauvignon, some may agree that this adds body.

Comparing the Sunday Bay with a Cloudy Bay (another of my favoured Sauvignon’s) I would have to say the Sunday Bay brings overwelming pronounced flavours of fruit that continue to develop as I sip. This wine is recommended to pair with shellfish, creamy pasta dishes or enjoyed simply on its own.

This exciting and thoroughly enjoyable wine is available through most reputable online retailers in the UK. Ching Ching!
