Fernway Sauvignon Blanc

Fresh as a daisy: Fernway NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The 2013 vintage is a definite BUY.

Price: ¥135

Fernway Marlborough Sauvignon-blanc is where its at once again, so buckle up and get ready for the ride.

The prodigal explosion of flavours has returned with powerhouse 2013 vintage. Are you up for the experience?

One of our very favourite white wines and certainly the favourite Sauvignon Blanc in pure value for money among NZ wines. And our customers agree. They try one initially and then they buy a case. And then another case. This is our #5 top selling white wine.

This is a n exciting expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape for which New Zealand has now achieved legendary status. Marlborough is the epicentre of that revolution.

The wine is pale straw in hue, with an impressive aromatic attack full of ripe asparagus and cucumber and melon. For me there was no cat’s pee, which aficionados are very much looking for (or gooseberries) but that suited me OK: all summer long. Drink cold and fresh and on its own for the experience of sheer pleasure. The flavour profile is complex with wonderful crispness from highly integrated acidity. The long refreshing finish is incredibly moreish.

The Wine Man

May 2014: Sank another bottle last night….! Enjoyed it before, during and after a home cooked Chinese meal of Pork Spare Ribs, Sechuan Pork and Stir Fried veggies in a Black Bean and Garlic sauce. Lovely during that balmy evening on the deck hour before dinner. My wife spotted a spritzy ‘frizzante’ edge to this latest vintage.
