This 2016 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc encompasses everything fresh and vibrant about Marlborough. Sauvignon Blanc. From the Awatere Valley comes aromatics and flavours such as lemongrass, jalapeno and fresh herbs as well as natural fresh acidity, due to the cooler climate influenced by Mt Tapuae-o-uenuku, cool alpine winds flowing down the valley as well the cooling ocean breezes. In contrast, the Wairau Valley has warmer summer months, with dry nor-westerly winds influencing the vineyards producing pungent Sauvignon Blanc with ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Enjoy. Serving Suggestions: Perfect aperitif wine, serve chilled on warm summer days. Ripe citrus flavours in this wine will match any fresh seafood dish or salad course.

Wine EnthusiastA consistent standard-bearer for the variety as expressed in Marlborough, the 2016 Private Bin boasts ample red currant and pink grapefruit aromas and flavors, perked up by a touch of leafiness. It's medium-bodied and perhaps a bit rounder and softer in the mouth than some, but finishes dry and stony.

Wine AdvocateA blend of the Awatere and Wairau Valley "sub-regions," the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Private Bin Marlborough offers lovely gooseberry and grass notes with a waft of capsicum. Medium-bodied, with good intensity, good length and texture, it is a slightly drier style than most at this price point.
