Very strong green olive aroma. Soft with a leafy, green palate. Slight citrus but nothing that stands out. Was not impressed. Read more

Tasty. Good value wine. I like more zing though. Read more

Like having a tropical fruit salad on the patio right after the lawn has been mowed. Light to med body, nice finish, acid is well balanced. Read more

COLOUR: Pale lemon in colour, with green tints and brilliant clarity. AROMA: Tropical fruit-driven aromas of pineapple and gooseberry complemented byhints of pink grapefruit, capsicum, and cut grass. PALATE: Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing, with vibrant flavours ofripe grapefruit, gooseberry and pineapple. Fresh, zingy acidity dominates thepalate with some pleasant fruit sweetness providing some weight to the palate. FOOD PAIRING: Enjoyable on its own or paired with chicken and seafood dishes. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Relatively soft and generous, offering pear and herb flavors, plus a moderate dose of grapefruit as the finish hovers nicely. Drink now.

A burst of bright and tangy fruit flavors, lively acidity and a juicy finish give this relative newcomer from New Zealand great appeal at an attractive price.

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.

Winery notes: ' Aromas: Expect a bouquet of ripe grapefruit, kiwifruit and pineapple. Palate: Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is a charming, elegant wine, displaying intense varietal character. Crisp and refreshing, with vibrant flavors of ripe citrus and tropical fruit, the palate has excellent weight and length.'

Tangy, with good concentration to the grapefruit peel, grass and quince flavors. Drink now.


External Review

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.
