Smooth, scents of clean beach, and seashore.My taste buds were feeling light citrus, pleasant lemon and grapefruit. No after taste. I did not pair it with any foods today. I would purchase it again.
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.
lime zest, minerality, lots of lime, yellow grapefruit, refreshing and easy drinking
External Reviews for Starborough Sauvignon Blanc
Evocative of the luscious Marlborough region, our 2012 Starborough Sauvignon Blanc has fresh green characteristics with notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Layers of passion fruit, guava and kiwi lead to the crisp, approachable style of this wine. - WineryTitratable Acidity: 0.86g/100mlpH: 3.3Alcohol Level: 12.5%Residual Sugar: .57g/100ml
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.
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.
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.
Tart, and lively, with pear and lime flavors that echo nicely on the open-textured finish. 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.
New Zealand's South Island is home to the stellar Marlborough growing region, producer of some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc. They have plenty of time to soak up the heady atmosphere of sunlit mountains, fleecy clouds and pure blue skies. The unhurried pace enables Starborough™ wine to develop rich layers of character, so it can be as flavorful as it is crisp and refreshing. Perhaps that's why Starborough™ Sauvignon Blanc stands out-the way in which it evokes the subtle flavor of New Zealand's natural beauty. It's a sophisticated taste that's easy to like.
