Robinsons Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Cookie suggested this as a good example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (NZSB).

Plucked from the vineyard bottled, shipped and in store ready to drink in less than 12 months not a bad effort.

This is a subtler New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in a style we are seeing more of, long may this last. Notes of gooseberry and passionfruit, which follows onto the palate with hints of tropical fruits finishing with, lime citrus flavours.  It still has all of those flavours one comes to expect from a NZSB but now they are starting to tone things down, less of a big smack in the face. Cookie then revealed it is only $12.95 per bottle retail. Now that is impressive, as there are a lot of one-dimensional NZSB’s at that price point. Had a further look into this wine since drinking and found out, it is a Coles Private Label wine and the wine is sourced from Wairau River Wines. So a wine from one of our two largest retails is a quality drop at an affordable price, not a bad effort in my books.
