External Reviews for Matua Sauvignon Blanc
Paretai remains a bit of an extreme style, giving even more herbaceous and grassy flavors than many N.Z. Sauvignons. Itrsquo;s leaner, drier and more focused as well, with passion fruit upfront and strident lime notes on the finish.
Emphasizing the green scents that often typify young Marlborough sauvignon, this has enough mouthwatering acidity to cut through oysters with cregrave;me fraicirc;che.
Brothers Bill and Ross Spence planted the North Bank vineyard only a few years ago, in rocky soils just past the Wairau River in Marlborough. Paretairsquo;s grapes come from a section of the vineyard that ripens about two weeks earlier than the rest. The resulting wine packs an impressive amount of zingy flavor into a racy frame, making it the top-scoring Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc for two years in a row.
A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2009 Matua Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Bright and ripe, with a solid feel to the lime and pear flavors, lingering on the tangy finish. Drink now. 89,000 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2009 Matua Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Sourced from Marlborough. A very fine nose with good delineation, good minerality with touches of limestone, lime and apple. Nice lift and perfume. The palate is finely balanced, minerally, just lacking a touch of tension but very good length and an attractive kiwi fruit tinged finish. Very fine. Drink nowndash;2010.
