Tasting Notes

Another Sauvignon in the tasting to have a reduced nose of struck match and a creamy palate, this fills out with tangerine, vanilla and spice. It's balanced by appley acidity and good intensity. It's a complete juxtaposition to Joel Delaunay's Touraine, which admittedly made it a bit easier to identify it as a Marlborough Sauvignon.

Score: 95

Kevin Judd's 2016 Wild Sauvignon features toasty accents to it layers of ripe nectarine and pineapple. It's medium-bodied, reasonably rich and textured on the palate, then it weakens a bit on the finish. Stronger vintages can age up to a decade or more, but I'd suggest drinking this by 2023.

This has all the complexity seen in great white wines with plenty of savory influence. Grilled nuts adorn biscuity and flinty lemon and grapefruit pith. The palate has punchy dried-peach and lemon flavors, as well as an appealing, very succulent and carefully layered texture. Drink now. Screw cap.

Just gorgeous, this is vibrant, fragrant and generous, with honeysuckle, Key lime, lemongrass and fresh ginger notes that mingle with grapefruit and pear flavors. Impressive for the intensity, showing a smooth body, refreshing acidity and long, lingering finish. Drink now.
