Very nice value for this under $10 per bottle wine. This vintage is getting a bit long in the tooth but I suspect younger vintages are showing much better. Light gold/green in color. The nose has slight tropical fruit and a bit of oxidation. On the palate, this has a nice enough crispness. Fruit is present but faded. Not much depth but still alive and drinking nicely. On a budget, this is worth checking out.
Light golden in color. The nose has nice minerality with some grapefruit. On the palate, this is a bit flabby and could use more acidity. On the other hand, the minerality carries forward. There is a bit of fruit. Nice finish. Eay sipping. A bit of a different take on Sauvignon Blanc.
Wow, this was one of the better Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand that I have had in a while. Blind, I would have guessed this to be from the Loire Valley. Light gold in color. The nose has nice white grapefruit with a nice minerality. Those qualities contiue thru to the pa;late. It is ripe but well within reason. Excellent acidity. Long finish. My only complaint? I tried to buy some and was unable to find any.
Always one of the better Sancerre's from the home of Sauvignon Blanc. This one is a bit surprising though. Blind, I might have guessed New Zealand. The nose has that gooseberry quality and very fresh. On the palate, the gooseberry continues thru. Nice acidity. Plenty of verve. Should be great with food. Nice finish. Always a nice value.
