Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Marisco Vineyards in Marlborough, NZ produces this Sauv Blanc with appetizing pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and gooseberry fragrances and lots of pink grapefruit, grassy notes and citrus on a mouth-watering palate. A long citrus finish completes the picture.
Tasted April 2016
The ancestors of the winemaker Brent Marris were appointed by the court to guard the Devon coasts of England in 1204, thus receiving the "King's Favour". Zesty and aromatic. - Community Wine Review.

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.
