Good value in this 2007 vintage. While it may not be a show-stopper, it's easy drinking. Very herbaceous with citrus notes on the nose, and the palate follows up with passionfruit on a medium finish.

External Reviews for Matua Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Lively, with very good concentration to lime, stone, orange peel and grassy flavors. A trace of sweetness rounds out the finish. Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2007 Matua Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Wine Tasting NotesA distinctive and aromatic Marlborough sauvignon blanc, delivering bright and lively gooseberry and passionfruit characters with a hint of lime. The palate is well proportioned with refreshing tropical flavours that linger on the seductive finish.
Good pre-vintage weather resulted in higher than average bunch counts, however patchy flowering reduced crops levels in line with average yields. Mild to warm ideal conditions leading up to harvest resulted in a very compact harvest at optimum ripeness, coinciding with normal picking dates. The grapes were machine harvested, with the juice being separated from the skins on arrival at the winery through a drainer. The skins were then pressed and the resulting juice reblended with the free run juice. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel with various selected yeast strains to enhance the pungent natural aroma. After fermentation the wines were racked off gross lees and allowed to sit on light lees prior to blending and bottling. Light green in color, tropical fruits and passion fruit dominate the nose supported by typical Marlborough sweat. The palate is intense and generous; classical Marlborough acidity supporting rich powerful fruit that envelops the whole mouth. Wine Spectator | Daniel Sogg | May 15, 2008Recommended Wines from New Zealand : Top ValuesThis is lively, showing very good concentration to the lime, stone, orange peel and grass flavors.
