I love this wine. If youâ€™re after classically fruity Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc try another label. But if youâ€™re seeking a rich, mellow and pleasingly complex that you can savour rather than quaff - this is the wine for you. Think of Cloudy Bay Te Koko and deduct $10 off the price.
Tasted: Jan 2007 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $26 (~USD $21)
