Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandMatua is said to have produced New Zealand's first sauvignon blanc in 1974 in Auckland. 2018 opens with a slightly earthy vegetal note and is reduced open opening. The theme continues onto the palate with dried herbs, flecks of jalapeno and a peppery, light passionfruit palate. The fruit is a blend of sites across Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere Valleys. A bit flat but ready to drink. Think fish tacos.Tasted: 10 January 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.99 BCLS QC 17.15 SAQ MB 18.00 private wine stores NF 19.00 NS 19.00 AB 16.00 private wine shops NB 20.49 NBLiquor Producer: Matua Valley WinesDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
