Not often that Marlborough Sauv Blanc comes into Australia over the $20 mark, so when it does, there’s an inference of something a bit special in the bottle. Distributed in Australia exclusively by Woolworth’s liquor and to be found at their Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores.
Isabel Estate, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, 2016
Expressive nose: rich with blackcurrant, vanilla and passionfruit. Varietal but vibrant notes of fresh asparagus mix with citrusy lime and green melon. Balanced and medium-full palate with fruity passionfruit, vanilla creme, mineral tautness and juicy acidity. A big step up from many of the seemingly endless ocean of average SBs.
RRP: $29 (AU)
