Natalie's Score: 93/100

Terrific lime-zestiness in this citrus-herbal inflected Sauvignon Blanc. Refreshing and zippy: classic New Zealand style. I'm so delighted that this wine is back on the shelves again as it's a benchmark for the Marlborough region. Top me up! Finishes with gooseberry and passionfruit. Liquid lovely.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: seafood salads, goat cheese with fresh baguette, poached salmon, pork tenderloin, onion and anchovy pie.

Great Goat Cheese Wine

In my opinion this is one of the best New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc on the market. Fantastic aromas of passion fruit, gooseberries and lemon. Long refreshing finish makes you want move to New Zealand and drink this every day.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
