Impressive variety of styles among recent sauvignon blancs

By Mark Henderson

Exciting to see the raft of interesting flavours across the wines, with some treading quite different paths.

No risk of Sauvignon Blanc being a one-trick pony here.

Finally, was the excitement at the overall quality across the group.

Sure, some accomplished producers here, but the class of these recent vintages shows too.

2020 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Price RRP $21.99

Rating: Excellent 

Sweetly fruited, fresh grapes, fruit sherbet, citrus, stony, cut grass, a hint of funk. Lovely flavour intensity with gold kiwifruit, spiced pear, citrus, herbs and tropical notes. Crisply refreshing, yet not strident acidity and great length. Manages to be clearly SB, while bringing in other flavours for interest. A lovely mouthful with lots to enjoy.
