Remember Me
18 Jan 2018

To quote jazz great Ella Fitzgerald: "summertime, and the livin' is easy''.

For some, summer holidays will already be a distant memory, while those who work through Christmas and New Year may now be putting their feet up. Whether it be at the end of a day's work, or in the middle of a holiday, I hope that the sun is warm on your skin.

Just the time then to introduce a collection of zesty, fresh sauvignon blancs that won't break the bank (and will invariably be even cheaper than noted, when on special).

2017 Mud House Rapaura Sub Region Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Rating: Very good to excellent

Bright and fragrant nose with tropical fruits and an undercurrent of zesty gooseberry. Creamy, soft and supple on entry, light to medium-bodied, adding a grapefruit note before the fresh, grassy, herbaceous elements come flooding in on the close. An appealing crunchiness on the dryish finish.

This grew nicely in the glass.
