Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandMatua is said to have produced New Zealand’s first sauvignon blanc in 1974 in Auckland, and by 1984 the North Island winery was making one in Marlborough too. The style here is classically fresh, with citrus, dried herbs and jalapeno notes on the nose and a brisk, citrus, peppery, tropical palate. The fruit comes off more than 100 different vineyards across Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere Valleys and delivers aromatic passion fruit flavours flecked with floral, dried thyme notes. Fresh, juicy and ready to drink. Perfect with a grilled chicken salad or West Coast steamed mussels.Tasted: 26 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.49 private wine shops - Everything Wine QC 19.00 MB 18.00 NF 19.00 ON 16.00 NS 19.00 AB 16.00 private wine shops Producer: Matua Valley WinesDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
