Allan Scott Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passion fruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer summer days.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine, from one of Marlborough's oldest winemaking families, is a solid, well-balanced drop, which is particularly impressive considering the difficult 2018 vintage. The nose leads with an attractive combo of ripe fruit bowl aromas (think peach, passion fruit, pineapple and guava) along with flower blossoms and a vegetal and dried herb nuance. Tangy acidity balances fruit weight, a chalky texture and a herbal finish.
Wine SpectatorThe pear and green apple flavors are succulent, bright and crisp, with plenty of verve from the fresh acidity. Details of matcha tea and lemongrass linger on the finish. Drink now. 60,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported
