Clean, crisp and vibrant New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region. Aromas of freshly cut grass, lime, chives and lemongrass. Racy acidity for seafood. Medium-bodied, no oak.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: oriental chicken salad with yoghurt and citrus dressing, grilled lemon herb chicken breast, roast duck breast on sliced poached pears.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely melon, gooseberry, grass, oily citrus and lanolin qualities dominate this lively crisp and refreshing savvy. 91 Points
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I don't know if I'm qualified to score Sauvignon Blanc any more. I used to buy it... drink it... enjoy it, but my tastes have changed. Now even the smell of SB turns me off (no offense to the many people who do enjoy it). I gave it an 88 because it was aggressive, under-ripe and those aromas I don't like are more pronounced. Headed in the right direction for some wine lovers but the wrong direction for me.
Auntsfield 2017 is a single-vineyard, dry and mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough. Look for fresh cut grass, light herbs and chives on the nose and palate wrapped up in a zesty lime finish. Auntsfield is the Marlborough region's first vineyard and winery established in 1873. Their single vineyard wines, like this one, are made from 100% estate grown fruit. - Community Wine Reviews
