Starborough Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand 2010
Tastes nice with most anything, refreshing alone.
Surprisingly bright flavors; citrus, peach, melon. Good balance, acidity. Can't keep my nose out of the glass. Great value for price imho.
External Reviews for Starborough Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand
Pleasantly soft and round, this is a good value Sauvignon Blanc for drinking over the next few months. Hints of stone fruit offset herbal notes reminiscent of crushed tomato leaf.
The quality here has been consistent over the past few vintages, offering solid value in an easy-drinking style. It leads with herbal aromas, but the flavors are less green, more melon and fig carried by a sense of creamy lushness.
Smooth and juicy, showing fragrant lemongrass, thyme and fresh grass notes that mingle nicely with bright lemon-lime and tart green apple flavors. There's a nice balance of power and elegance. Drink now.
Vivid and bright, with plenty of intensity to the lime, passion fruit, melon and guava flavors. Drink now.
This is only light to medium in body, but it has a tactile, peach-skin element that gives extra interest on the palate and pleasant flinty notes alongside modest citrus fruit. Drink now.
Winemaker's Notes - Our Sauvignon Blanc delivers all of the refreshing citrus aromas and lively acidity that characterizes the Marlborough region. Our goal is to take the Starborough experience even further; with a layered texture and long, crisp finish that truly epitomizes the character of New Zealand itself.
Grassy, with very good depth to quince and lime skin flavors. Drink now.
