Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Details





Wine Description

Here at Matua, Sauvignon Blanc is pretty special. That's because back in 1974, we produced NZ's very first Sauvignon Blanc. 10 years later, we were making it in Marlborough. Now, Marlborough Sauvy is world famous for its unique, fresh flavours. For this wine, we've chosen grapes from across Marlborough, giving you the best crisp and tropical flavours Marlborough has to offer all in one sip!

    Surprisingly nutty and full-flavored for a sauvignon blanc. Fruity and refreshing. Sweetness is nicely counterbalanced by acidity.

    Reminds me of Kim Crawford with its refreshing, not overly-sweet or overly-tart finish. Definitely love this wine!

    Dry and effervescent with a strong flavor of peach. Excellent; just exactly to my liking.

    (2016 Vintage) Succulent, fleshy peach and nectarine flavors are accented by Key lime, mango and ruby grapefruit notes. Shows nice intensity on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 589,000 cases made.–MW
