Fernway Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: Wine Man Pick

October 16, 2011
Fernway Sauvignon Blanc

The NZ wine is pale straw, with an impressive aromatic attack full of ripe asparagus, cucumber & melon. Drink cold & fresh, on its own for the sheer pleasure. The flavour profile is complex with wonderful crispness from highly integrated acidity. The long refreshing finish is incredibly moreish. Going up in price again this year due to a stronger NZ currency.

Misha's Vineyard

An old stomping ground of mine was Otago. We never could understand why anyone would live in central Otago. Then we tried the wines…“Misha’s Vineyard has engaged the talented Olly Masters as their winemaker. He combines the exuberantly bold and spicy nose laced with sweet dark cherry and ripe black and red berry fruit one has come to expect…”

Sacred Hill Whitecliff Sauvignon Blanc: Wine Man Pick

Sacred Hill Whitecliff Sauvignon Blanc

This has lots and lots of crunch with plenty of citrus and green apple fruit and some sweeter, tropical notes. Quite savoury on the palate, a little herbal edge and fresh acidity. A nicely balanced wine and a restrained yet fruity style.
