Natalie's Score: 92/100
From Winelord Ltd., Middle-Earth is a dry and zesty Sauvignon Blanc with ripe peach, tropical fruit and fine herb flavours vibrant on the palate. This wine is named for JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, which was filmed in beautiful New Zealand (and has since generated an estimated $100 million extra revenue in tourism as a result). Middle-Earth Vineyards was established originally more than half a century ago as a dairy farm. In 1996, the owners converted to grape farming and launched their first wine in 2012.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken and sage skewers, fresh tomato and basil salad, Thai green curry fish, fresh oysters on the half shell with lemon and horseradish.

Finally enjoyed with a salmon and rice dish with hollandaise sauce on Dec 23/21 with ET, Maureen, and Hugh. Smooth with a hint of herbs, well received!
|Kendra & Matthew Elliott rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This wine is extremely aromatic + fruit forward. Notes of tropical fruit ; pineapple, mango with well balance acidity. It was drinking beautifully with our shrimp cocktail. It is also so approachable that it would be a great crowd pleasing NZ Sauv Blanc.
|Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is fresh, zippy and ready to be served chilled. Featuring some pronounced stone fruit, kiwi and tropical aromas, it feels light bodied and dry with a subtle, pleasingly grippy texture punctuated by stone fruit focussed flavours. The finish is a stone fruit symphony. Enjoy with grilled shrimp skewers.

|Middle-Earth 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is great value under $20. From a dry vintage, the 2019 is flinty with fine herb aromas on the nose, dry, with a citrus zing, fine herb, and flinty flavours mouth-watering on the palate. Pair with a goat cheese, roasted artichoke and asparagus galette. Grapes were sourced from Windmill, Snowden's East and West, Twin Rivers vineyards. - Community Wine Reviews|
