Med body and dry. Crisp and acidic as usual. Lemongrass and grapefruit.
The Wine Spectator, Fresh and lively, with lemon curd and verbena flavors that glide easily across the open texture. Drink now. 75,000 cases made. Harvey Steiman, June 15.
a greenish color. aroma has a lime smell, not a bad wine and would buy again
Rather acidic white with simple, yet elegant tones.
Good, but not as crisp as better SBs.
Very mild acidity. Flavors of lemon and grass.
Hint of tropical, almost grassy. Mild wine with good balance. semi-sweet. An all around good, light wine.
External Reviews for Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
The Wine Spectator Fresh and lively with lemon curd and verbena flavors that glide easily across the open texture. Drink now. 75000 cases made. Harvey Steiman June 15.
Tangy, with good concentration to the grapefruit peel, grass and quince flavors. Drink now.
Produced in huge quantities, this mainstream Marlborough Sauvignon remains a good value, offering an easy introduction to thousands of American consumers. A slightly smoky, fumé character gives way to round, ripe flavors of stone fruit, melon and fig, finishing soft. Drink now.
It's a bit simple and a bit soft, but this value-priced wine accomplishes its mission of bringing authentic Marlborough SB flavor to the U.S. at an affordable price. Gooseberry and lime flavors are touched with hints of honey and mint, finishing with a bit of sweetness.
Lemon, pippin and grass flavors have very good depth, with fragrant guava and mineral highlighting the finish. Drink now.
Round and soft, with gently leafy notes that accent the stone fruit and grapefruit flavors. It's a solid introduction to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at a fair price.
Relatively soft and generous, offering pear and herb flavors, plus a moderate dose of grapefruit as the finish hovers nicely. Drink now.
